Good morning, I am not a US citizen and not a resident in US. Is it possible for me to open an account in the US? If yes, should I come in person to a TD bank branch or the account can be open from overseas? If I come in person, which documents should I bring? How long will it take to open the account (is it ok if I stay only one day in the US?)? If I want to transfer money to the TD account, what is the daily maximum amount and should I provide any justification (bank statement, salary certificate...)? Will there be any tax on the money transferred to this account? Thank you in advance for your kind help.

Thanks for your interest in opening an account with TD, Sophie! We'd be glad to help with the information you'll need.
In order to open an account with us, you will need to visit us at a TD Bank Store. We apologize for any inconvenience. To take a look at Store locations and their hours please visit: http://go.td.com/1f9DSJR. It shouldn't take you too long to get the account started once you're here!
We recommend taking a look at the accounts we have to offer. You are able to take a look at checking accounts here: https://go.td.com/2eQORxu and savings accounts here: https://go.td.com/2dIcnAw.
If you're having trouble choosing an account, you are able to use our Checking Selector Tool here: https://go.td.com/KmmHe7 and our Savings Selector here: https://go.td.com/1hXi2wF for a custom recommendation.
Once you are ready to visit a Store, as a Non-US resident you will need to bring two forms of identification with you. One form of ID must be a Non-US passport and the second form of 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 recommend reaching out to the TD Store you plan on visiting prior to your trip to determine if any additional information will be necessary to open an account.
In regard to making wire transfers, there is no minimum or maximum that your account is able to receive. Depending on the method you choose to send funds there may be a fee assessed upon receipt. To learn more about any fees associated with transfers, please visit here: https://go.td.com/2kFZ5mK. As to your tax question, we would recommend reaching out to a tax adviser for further info.
We hope to see you at a TD Store soon, Sophie, and thanks for choosing us!
