I'm a danish citizen moving to London in september to start a university degree. My question is as follow: will I be allowed to open an ISA? On the internet is say's that I need to be a UK resident age 18 or over. As a European I have a right to live in the UK, so I guess I satisfy these requirements. It also says that I need to have a national insurance number, but that shouldn't be a problem to get - or am I wrong? Any help is much appreciated!

    Yes you can open an ISA if you are a resident in the UK., should be no problem opening one. If you move back to Denmark you will not be able to make any more contributions to any opened ISA. while you were in the UK.

    When applying for an NI number use the Direct Gov website, do not use other rip off sites that charge you money.
