Most U.S. banks only allow residents to hold accounts. For U.S. expats overseas, no longer being a resident can cause issues.
Expats have struggled to maintain bank accounts in the U.S. due to a lack of a mailing address, or even telephone number. Zenus can solve that.
The challenges with US expat banking
As an expat, living and working abroad opens a world of exciting opportunities, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges.
Managing finances across borders can be complex and time-consuming. Fluctuating exchange rates, different banking systems, and high transaction fees can make it difficult to spend or transfer money. Frequently, expats will find themselves subject to the authority of unreasonable bank managers and harsh banking restrictions.
Making international transfers, paying for goods and services, or withdrawing money from your home country’s bank account while abroad can be costly and inconvenient. Finding a reliable way to access your funds while avoiding hefty fees is a constant concern for expats.
Expats regularly encounter hurdles when it comes to contracting and getting paid for their work. Differences between various financial systems, bank transfer limits and slow payment processing speeds means expats often face delays or non-payment of wages, which undermines their financial stability.
Not all banks cater to the needs of expats, making it difficult to find an institution that understands your unique circumstances. Expats often struggle to find a bank that offers the necessary services and flexibility to meet their financial requirements.
