I just read here that I can open a Checking Account even if I'm not an US citizen or an US resident. However, I still have two questions:
1) Can I transfer money from my TD Account to my broker account (like TD Ameritrade), even if I do not have an US address (or do not be an US resident)?
2) Can I use the debit card outside US?

Welcome to TD Helps, Felipe. We'd be happy to provide you with some information today.
First, we would like to let you know that even if you're not a United States citizen at this time, we welcome your business! In order to open an account with us, you'll just need to visit us at a TD Bank Store. For hours and locations take a look here: http://bit.ly/TDStores.
We offer many different types of Checking and Savings accounts. To view and compare our checking accounts, visit http://bit.ly/1aDaRqd or check out our checking selector http://bit.ly/1vW1xnU for help in selecting an account that is the best fit for you. To view and compare savings account products, click on http://bit.ly/1pJT9I9 , or if you prefer, we also have a savings selector http://bit.ly/1vW1DvM which can help you choose the best savings account for your needs.
Once you are ready to visit a Store, you will need to bring two forms of identification with you. One form of ID must be a valid non-US Passport with photo or non-US Passport and Visa with photo and the second form of valid ID you may select from the list below:
- Employment ID with Photo and Signature
- State Issued ID or Driver's License with Signature
- Foreign Driver's License with Photo
- US Employment Authorization card with Photo, Signature and Expiration Date
- College ID with Photo
- Alien Registration Card with Photo
- Permanent Resident Card with Photo
We also do recommend that you contact your preferred TD Bank Store by phone prior to your visit to ensure that you have all the documentation required. The contact information for our Stores is listed at the first link provided above.
Once your account is open and you have received your TD Visa Debit Card, we're pleased to inform you that you can use your TD Bank Visa Debit Card worldwide, anywhere VISA is accepted. You can also use your debit card to make cash withdrawals internationally at any ATM Machine that displays either the VISA or PLUS logo. Please note, ATM fees may apply; we encourage you to check out our current fee schedule, http://bit.ly/1cTejgt, as it outlines any applicable fees that may come into play when you use your debit card out of the country.
Although TD Bank and TD Ameritrade are under the same TD shield, we are different entities and apologize that we are unable to complete any TD Ameritrade account opening applications from our end. We want to share that our TD Bank footprint spans from Maine to Florida.
For any information about starting an account with our brokerage affiliate, TD Ameritrade, we recommend connecting with a Representative 24/7 at 800-400-3603. Feel free to also visit http://bit.ly/1BMZkQl for more information on getting started.
Great news, you can transfer funds back and forth from your TD Ameritrade to your TD Bank account! With that being said, you have a couple of ways that you can transfer funds to and from your TD Ameritrade and TD Bank account. You may login to your account on the TD Ameritrade website and request to retrieve funds from TD Bank via ACH. You can also utilize our Bill Pay feature and set up TD Ameritrade as a payee as well. If you have any questions regarding these methods, please contact TD Ameritrade 24/7 at the above mentioned number.
We hope this information is helpful, Felipe.
