Opening a bank account in the UK can be frustrating and these days involves collecting a proof of address which is impossible if you have just landed and have no address or bills with your name on.
With the growth of online bank accounts, life has definitely become easier to get an account that you can start using straight away. Some of the online products you’ll already know about from friends and searching online however, we highly recommend looking at Unizest.
