Open a UK bank account the easy way

Just looking to open a UK bank account, with none of the added extras? We can get your bank account sorted for you as soon as you arrive in the UK. 

We help you:

  • Prepare the necessary documents
  • Book an appointment with a high street bank
  • Take care of any related admin

 

 

As someone who has just arrived in the country, it can be difficult to open a UK bank account. They often require three months of recent utility bills and a lease agreement to open an account. Even then, you may only get basic account options.

That's where 1st Contact comes in. We have excellent working relationships with some of the UK's major banks, allowing you to open your account quickly and easily in the UK.
