    Hello,

    It can be difficult to open a conventional bank account without proof of address, this has been the case since money laundering legislation was passed in the early '90s.

    You may want to look at this page that has some tips: Can you open an account without brook of address? | moneyfacts.co.uk

    There are also other options, like digital banks/apps which are run over your phone, these include: Revolut, Monzo and Starling.

      Personally, I have firstly opened an account with Monzo and then I went to various banks. Lloyd's eventually welcomed me with my Monzo's statement and an ID of mine.

      Hope that helps.
      I am not affiliated to any firm and I am doing this independently on my own, no one is paying me for this.
      I am not one of the forum volunteers.
      I hope to start working as paralegal soon.
      If I helped you, a thumbs-up is always appreciated.
