Opening a bank account

Many international banks in Singapore offer a wide range of services, including bank accounts for students.

Different banks have different requirements as well as various types of saving and checking accounts. You may wish to bring enough cash or traveller’s cheques to cover your expenses while deciding on the bank you wish to open an account with.

To open an account you will require:

Transfer of funds

Students may receive additional funds using bank drafts made out in Singapore dollars and drawn from a Singapore bank. These can be credited to your bank account and drawn in 1-2 days. Cheques drawn on banks with no branches in Singapore may take three weeks to clear.

Telegraphic transfer may also be made directly through another bank to your account.
