    I believed you can use estonian accounts.
    There were purchaseable back then on a site called ***. I'm not sure if the site is still up.
    back then few years ago they were selling a paypal account with complete info + estonian bank account with deposit box plastic card it costed 3k. Will attach a link if it still there.

    You will need to travel to Switzerland to get your account opened, so you will need to bring some real money with you that you can deposit imediantly. If you think you can open an account there with your $500 safings then forget about it they won't even do a meeting with you.

    I did't talk about $500...I just asked for recommendation for bank...if anybody is using it.
    Most of banks allow online account opening, I just don't know which one to choose.

    If your intentions are to hide your money by depositing cash in Switzerland, it isn't going to work, at all.

    i highly doubt if someone here has a swiss account, they would mention it here... they would be pretty dumb if they do, and deserve to get the money garnished thats in the account...

    No, reason is not hiding.

    My question was not HOW to open account, but I asked for recommendation from fellow BHW member.
    There is a big difference finding bank at google or getting recommendation for it.

    Reason is not Tax...

    Got it... I'm sorry for myself, that I even tried to answer. Will keep in mind next time. Didn't see the name of OP before answering earlier... I know better now.
    Btw the link I mentioned earlier does say that those swiss banks DO NOT open accounts online for obvious reasons. You should have read that link even though your question was different.

    Btw, recommendation from members is not going to give any accurate picture unless you want to do/use it for BH business imo. Otherwise, each bank especially in Europe or N. America or Japan Australia, NZ, etc (1st world countries) is highly reputed in its own way. Just saying.

    Yes, there are banks that allows account opening online. This one for example - https://www.cimbanque.com/en/thebank
    You fill online form, they call you and setup Skype video chat and interview and you get account opened.
    Most of offshore banks work like that.

    Yes, I did but I didn't open account yet. I'm just trying to get any recommendation first. To hear anything like "My friend is using XY bank for over 5 years..."

    Main reason for choosing Switzerland is because of my personal opinion about global economy.
    This is not place to discuss about it, but let me say - EUR or USD and all banks in USA and EU does not have real cover for all money they use. If market collapse in USA because of China - Russia removing USD from stock transactions (like Africa did) or EUR because of Greece, I would prefer to stay in Swiss family bank that really has cover for all their funds in real gold or whatever...

    But again, I won't like to discuss anything about economy here.
    This is just my personal opinion and reason for looking in Switzerland banks.

    Well estonian banks are the same neutral and have control in currency and can be converted to any and through paper directly if you have the same option and has safe deposit boxes directly and can be tied directly through other banks by linking.

    .eestipank.ee/en
    .swedbank.ee/private

    I don't know about the application right now if they accept online as last time it was an insider that did the job for me.
    used swedbank back then estipank is good heard some users on btctalk using it to clean their money.

    Both are good and neutral in all aspects in which no one can touch them and currency can be always converted and all covered and backed up in swedbank you can convert it directly through shares on company or gold by buying directly from gold banks price per bar as far as i remember note this was a few years ago.

    Just try your luck on them and i suggest go with some other forums than here :)
