I have a friend coming to stay and she wants to look for work

She needs a bank account but from what I remember I had to show sale purchase docs or my house

Can she just open an account without proof of rental or ownership ?

Thanks

dont know if this is relevant but i am still in UK when i contacted bank of cyprus they were willing to allow me to open an account as long as i had proof of ID and uk address
I never actually opened the account or went to the bank to discuss so this may have changed when i went but maybe worth just asking a locall branch whats possible

maybe you were making a big deposit and then they want to see proof of where the money came from?

I opened a bank account while over in November, all I needed was my passport and a utility bill from the UK.
