My partner just arrived in SA from Italy on a critical skills visa. He will now start the job hunting process. Will he be able to open a bank account so that he can transfer some money for himself to use here? What are the requirements for a foreigner? I saw on Capitec's website they not only want to see the visa but also a work contract, which he doesn't yet have. Will any of the other banks let him open an account without a job contract?
