Re: Bank recommendation

I don't think that's the point, though. The OP wants to open an account as a non-resident person and is looking for a way to avoid the fees. Nothing is stopping him from opening an account but it's unlikely that the charges can be dropped without falsifying or bending information at some point in the application process.
Correct. Only those who sign up to the account whilst actually resident will be within the law I think. What happens afterwards though is another matter. I am quite sure a lot of people leave and the account stays open without a change of address, at least not an immediate one.
Residence however can be obtained essentially by being here for a minimum of one day and if you open the account on that day you'd be within the rules. Any stay of up to 3 months doesn't require a permit either, so no permit will be needed for the bank either.
