    Hi,

    I started a company in UK to serve our European customers as we are a US travel company. I need to open a bank account and a merchant account in UK or Europe without having to visit the bank. I don't want to fly to Europe just to open a bank account. I see most of the offshore banks in Europe have high fees or ask for a big deposit to open the account. Any help is appreciated.

    I would first contact a local bank in the US (such as CitiBank) that also has branches in the UK.

    I'm sure they can give you step-by-step instructions, and they might be able to actually help you set it up.

    I tried HSBC in USA and CitiBank but they said that they cannot open a UK account.
