I would like to open an account.
A deposit account or a current account?
Er, I am not sure. You see, I have monthly remittances sent to me from China and I would like to have the money paid into an account.
Then you’d better open a current account. The bank will give you a cheque book and you can take money out when you like.
Fine. What do I have to do?
Just fill in this form. Do you have any means of identification on you?
Will my passport do?
