EU national but non-resident

#1

Dears,

I am resident of Saudi Arabia where Revolut is not yet available.
Nevertheless as an EU citizen frequently travelling to Europe I would like to open a Revolut account and to top it up with USD.
Is there a way to open an account?

Thanks

Only if you have residency documentation for an EEA country I believe. So your passport and home address for whatever country you’re a citizen of should be fine.

Yes, I have a french passport but residence in KSA and would like to open a Revolut account and top it up with USD sent from my Saudi account. How does it work?

#4

From my understanding the eligibility criteria is not based off of nationality, but resdifency.

eg. A non-UK/EU individual with residency can sign up for a Revolut account, whereas a UK/EU national permanently living in Brazil, for example, cannot.

This is what I understand but I though it is more an issue with the approved currencies and since I do not intend to use this account with the Saudi currency but only with US Dollars to top it up I am wondering if there is not a way around.

Presently it is impossible for me to contact Revolut directly so I hoped that one of their representatives would make a reply here.

Talk to @AndreasK. He’ll be able to assist you in this matter.

I can apparently not talk to or message that member directly.

New users have DM restrictions. Anti-spam prevention.

Dephibio has @ed @AndreasK so Andreas should be here soon to help clarify your eligibility for a :r: account.

Hopefully. Waiting for @AndreasK reply here.

No reply sofar from @AndreasK

However, he will answer. But it can not reasonably be expected that @AndreasK will be available 25 hours a day and 8 days a week. :wink:

Hi @philippulus

Thank you for your interest.

The guys above are right :slight_smile: Our services are only available to legal residents in the EEA.

Do you have a French valid address, apart from a French passport?

Brest,

@AndreasK No, I don’t

Hi Andreas
I am British, resident in Singapore, but do have a London address (still in the EU for a few months!). Would revolut work for me just with an address, and no tax residence in the EU/EEA?

Dear Andreas. @AndreasK
I have a Hungarian passport and permanent residency ( permanent permit ) in the Czech Republic.
I would like to start using Revolut as a primary bank account as I am traveling a lot.
But what will be the consequences if I move at the end of the year to UAE for 3-year contract and become a UAE tax resident, it is mean that I will receive the funds from my UAE bank account.
In the EU I will remain the only correspondence address.
Best regards,
KL
