Creating a new account if in a different country

Hi there,

I am trying to create a new account in order to use my UK bank account abroad. I’m a UK citizen with a UK bank account but live in Colombia, and only have a Colombian telephone number. When I try to sign up, it says it will let me know when Revolut is available in Colombia. Do you know if there is a way round this?

Many thanks,


Use a virtual phone number based in the UK, for example a Skype number

Thank you - really appreciate the advice. Won’t there be an issue receiving codes or anything? I have a US skype business number, can I use that and set up a UK bank account?

Issues do come up but I’ve always found a solution.
You would need to be more specific.
Currently Revolut’s system won’t accept a US number for a UK account. I can’t address question about UK banks.
