Hi I'm looking to open a basic checking account at TD Bank. I'm vacationing in New York in June (visiting from Ireland) and I'd like to open it then. Would I be able to open an account, and what exactly would I need to bring in order to open my account? I have two passports (British and Irish), a student ID, and a government ID card? I have a US address I can use for correspondence if necessary. I'm sure you get this question regularly so thanks for taking the time to respond. J.

Hey, James and thank you for your interest in banking with us! We'll be glad to provide you with some info on how to do so.
If you're not a United States citizen or resident at this time, you are still more than welcome to open an account with us at any TD Bank Store. When you arrive in New York, for our hours and locations take a look here: http://bit.ly/TDStores. The identification you will need is listed below, and please note that we highly recommend contacting the Store you'd like to visit ahead of time to be certain that you'll have all the documents needed for account opening. Since you're in Ireland right now, you can reach us using our international numbers during business hours and we can connect you. From outside the United States, call us via phone on 1-856-751-9000, or collect with operator assistance from a land line phone by asking the operator to dial 1-215-569-0518.
Once you are ready to visit a Store, as a non-U.S. Resident you will need to bring two forms of identification with you. One form of ID must be a valid non-U.S. Passport with photo or non-U.S. 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
- U.S. Employment Authorization card with Photo, Signature and Expiration Date
- College ID with Photo
- Alien Registration Card with Photo
- Permanent Resident Card with Photo
