Default How to open a British bank account while living overseas?

'm a British Citizen who currently lives in Korea. I'd like to open a British bank account, but not sure if I can without going into a branch in person and signing forms, etc. Is it possible to do this while living overseas and if so, what bank would you reccomend. I'd like to get a Visa card with the account and more importantly, the ability to withdraw money from other countries. I travel a lot.

Hi Leaurton! I came across this platform the other day when I was planning for my overseas studies called Flying Chalks. They help international students enhance their overseas studies experience like you can connect with friends that are going to the same university that you are going to and you can also ask for some advice from those who have been to that university. You can check out their website at www.flyingchalks.com or you can visit their Facebook Page here!

As far as I know, they have quite a few guides on universities in Korea such as SNU, Korea Uni, and Yonsei and they provide information about accommodation, how to open a bank account in Korea, flights, food outlets, leisure activities, and even comprehensive information about the university and the country you are heading to! And all of these are written in english too hehehe Hope this helps!!
