    UK bank account. 1st Dec 17 at 5:09 PM
    I am a UK citizen that has been a Falkland Island resident for 40 years. Anybody know a UK bank that I can open an account with. Can then start saving.

    You could try the HSBC basic account-
    https://www.hsbc.co.uk/1/2/current-accounts/basic-bank-account

    From their website you have to print off the application form and post it back rather than applying online as I guess the Falklands are classed as outside the UK.
    From HSBC- 'Are you an EU resident living outside the UK?
    Please print and complete the application form and send it back to HSBC Bank plc, PO BOX 1888, Coventry, CV3 2BR, United Kingdom.'

    The Falklands are indeed outside the UK but are also outside the EU by some distance, so claiming residence in the EU while living there wouldn't be appropriate....
