Chase Bank no longer opens accounts for Non-US Citizens without passports
 
Learned this yesterday as I went to go open a Chase bank account. I normally have my drivers license which is normally fine to open bank accounts along with a secondary form ofid such as a debit card or credit card. The store manager requested that since I am not a citizen, I need to provide a green card or a valid passport.

Since I got DACA, I don't worry about my passport much so this came as a shock. And I'm an existing Chase client lol.

I thought that was the normal operating procedure, two valid form of ID's to establish identity. That's why I always keep my passport up to date.

A license is a valid government issued photo id. Chase is requiring a foreign issued one. I can open an account anywhere else with my license. The MVC has 6 points of id in place for gods sake...if a state id doesn't fulfill the requirement of an id that needed 6 points to obtain then wtf?

Chase really is the worst , you need ID to deposit money or pay a credit card . Tried depositing money in my dad's account and they made it seem like I was trying to get in the white house

If they're making it hard for you to open an account... I would go somewhere else that will accept you. There's plenty of banks out there!

Bank of America has got to be the most pro-undocumented bank out there. They even have letters specifically written for uscis in case bank information is required.
They may be pricey, but they're really convenient in MANY ways.

I agree. I've had an account with them since I was 13 years old and my mother has been a customer just as long.

Either way, I can see how inconvenient this may be for you OP. The only option you have now is to take your business elsewhere. At least the trouble they've caused you may save even one other person a similar
headache.

My guess is just a branch specific / rep issue. They're human beings and some are there to help you out, while others would probably scrutinize as much as they can, just because.

I opened a Chase checking couple of months ago to have as a secondary, all they wanted was my DL, and existing Chase credit card which I had, I didn't fill out anything or get asked on citizenship status, the banker had me sign couple of places and took care of it.
