What you need to open a bank account.
Refugees and Asylum Seekers
We want to make opening a bank account as straight forward as possible.
At AIB, we understand that if you are seeking Asylum or have recently been granted Refugee status, you might not have access to standard documents. We have listed the standard documents we need, and the alternatives we will accept if you don’t have them here.
Please arrange an appointment with your local branch and our staff will be happy help you through the process, find the right kind of current account for you and answer any questions you may have.
