    Expat requires UK Bank Account 19th Apr 17 at 3:41 PM
    My younger brother wishes to open a UK bank account, he is living in Poland and has a UK Passport. Can this be done remotely. He just needs a simple cheque and internet account.

    Yes no and yes.
    1 All EU banks have to open an account for other EU member citizens.
    All will have their own procedure I looked at Lloyds Bank as an example - you apply online print off the application form and enclose copies of your ID and send to the address given (this cannot be done in branch).
    2 A basic account will not have a cheque book.
    3 All accounts these days has internet access.
    What goes around - comes around
    give lots and you will always receive lots
