Hassle free banking

No, really... it does!
But does it matter more in Malta than at home?

Hassle free banking

Postby Penury » Mon 25 Jan 2016 14:27 GMT

Is it simple & easy to open a small bank account & get a credit card from the same bank with all or any of the screwing around?

For a new arrival taking up residence, are there any particular named banks that has the easy to do & good customer service?

Due to money laundering laws opening a bank account is not simple. As for getting a credit card locally , even harder, and if you get one they often insist you maintain a current account balance at least equal to your credit limit! Best is to visit banks in person to discuss your circumstances as they seem more flexible that way
