Opening a French bank account? Here’s how.
Proof of a French address: This attestation d’hébergement can be a letter from your landlord or a copy of your housing agreement if you’ve just moved in. Otherwise, it can be a copy of a bill addressed to you.
EU citizens/non EU citizen: Bring a copy of your passport if you’re an EU citizen. If you’re not, you’ll need to bring a carte de séjour (your proof of residence).
Proof that you are working/studying in France: This can be a copy from your employer- make sure it’s signed! If you’re a student, a student card with a copy of an enrolment certificate from your college will suffice.
Birth certificate: This will need to be translated. There are a variety of companies who do it for a fee. This is not entirely essential- some banks don’t require it- but it’s definitely worth having if you’re moving to France.
You’ll also need to have some money to deposit into your new account.
Et voila- c’est fait!
