We want to make it as simple as possible for you to complete your International Banking application. All you need to do now is get your documents ready to send – we can’t open your account without them, so here’s what you need to do.

If you haven’t already completed your application, or you’re part way through and you want to continue, you can start or continue an application here.

What do we need?

We’ll need you to send us three things:

  • Certified copy of identity document (for each applicant)

    In most cases this will be your current, valid passport although some other types of ID are acceptable. There’s more information and a template in the Application Guide [PDF, 253KB].

  • Certified copy or original proof of address (for each applicant)

    Your proof of address will normally be a bank or building society statement or a utility bill. See the Application Guide for more details.

  • Your signed Client Agreement

    - If your account location is London, use the PLC Client Agreement Form [PDF, 355KB]

    - For account locations of Isle of Man, Jersey or Guernsey use the PLC (Guernsey, Isle of Man and Jersey) Client Agreement Form [PDF, 358KB]
