How to open your bank current account with Monese?

The current account provider, Monese, accepts virtually every customer that applies to have a current account with them. The company is available to people living in the European Economic Area (EEA) and requires none of the usual papers that most banks ask to open current accounts. 

That means that you don't need a local proof-of-address and proof of credit history. Plus, you don't need to go anywhere in person to open your current account.
