3 thoughts on “How difficult is it for a foreigner to open a bank account in Poland?”

  1. Just to let you know that I recently wanted to open an account with Millennium Bank and they refused this on the grounds that I am a foreigner. I am an Irish national with a valid passport (Irish government issued) a valid Polish residents card (Polish government issued) and I am registered to a valid Polish address (Miasta Krakowa issued). Even though I had all of these documents including Polish Pesel and I was in the bank in person at one of their branches, I was refused the opportunity to open an account. This all happened in 2021. btw my car is registered to me personally with a valid Polish registration plate. I can only come to one conclusion and it is not a very pleasant one.
