Good morning, I'm Alfredo Leonardi. My wife is an american citizen. We live in Italy. Next year we will move to live in USA, but now we need to open a checking account.
My wife has ssn and american passport.
Can we open a checking account online? We have an american address where we will go to live.
Can you help us?

Hi Alfredo! Thanks for visiting us at TD Helps today.
This sounds like an exciting time for you and your wife. We wish you both the best of luck in your upcoming move!
As your wife is a U.S. citizen and has a Social Security number, she may be able to open an account online or by phone. We encourage you both to check out all of the accounts we're currently offering. We even offer a great Account Selector tool that takes into consideration how you intend to use the account to help find the perfect fit for you. You can find this feature by clicking here: https://go.td.com/2sx4N2E. Once you've found the account you'd like, just click the orange 'Apply Now' button. Your wife will then be taken to our online application.
If she has any difficulty opening the account online, or she'd just like to discuss the accounts with us, please don't hesitate to give us a call. We're available 24/7 to answer any question she may have and to even take the application for her. To contact us by phone from outside of the United States, please use country code 011 and call 856-751-9000 or call us collect from a landline with operator assistance at 215-569-0518.
Please know that only individual accounts can be opened online or by phone, but you could be added to the account once you've arrived in the United States. Adding signers, opening joint accounts, and opening accounts for non-U.S. citizens will need to be done in person at a TD Bank Store.
Once you're here in the U.S., just stop in to see us. You'll need your Italian passport and one other form of photo ID to be added to an account or to open an account. We always recommend reaching out to the Store you intend to visit prior to your trip to discuss the identification documents you have to ensure they're acceptable for account opening. To find contact info and hours for a Store near your home in the U.S., please click here: https://go.td.com/1nq31dc.
We hope this helps, Alfredo. Again, we wish you both the very best and the smoothest of transition for your upcoming move. Take care!
