Asylum seekers may not have the traditional documentation that most banks require to set up a bank account
Bank of Ireland has launched a dedicated website hub for asylum seekers with summary information provided in 19 languages.
The hub explains the types of bank account available, the documentation that is required to open one, and how to apply.
The Bank has also tailored its current account opening requirements to accept substitute State-issued documentation such as a Temporary Residence Certificate (TRC), ‘Stamp 4’ Irish Residency Permits and/or the Irish-government-issued Refugee Travel Document.
