Practical Information

Should I open a bank account in Italy?

If you have a bank account with an international cash card (compatible to the “PLUS”, “CIRRUS”, or “VISA”), you will have direct access to your account through the compatible most of ATMs in the city, making a local bank account unnecessary. However, If you wish to open an account with an Italian bank while abroad, you must obtain an application form from a branch of an Italian bank (either in Italy or your home country). You need to select a branch from the list provided, which should be close to your home or place of business in Italy.
