Or maybe a smart way to make a CD/band promotion, gota make a mental note...

OP, if you do not know what UBS is, what B Permit is, and anything else, the search function usually yields a nice chunk of info to read through.

Good luck with your search for an account, I wonder if you have a local friend that could go with you to a local bank and help out with some questions, etc.

Re: Opening a savings account in Switzerland?

@nikki:
since you are intending to open a savings account, I guess you intend to stay for a while in beautiful Switzerland, right?
In that case you'd certainly have a sort of residence permit eventually.

When choosing a bank, I would suggest to go for UBS (United Bank of Switzerland) for savings account and for a normal account for daily useage. (you can withdraw with ec-direct from any ATM without additional fees).

Re: Opening a savings account in Switzerland?

And wherer r u from anyway?

i think your visa permit plays a important role here. What kind of visa do you get? if you r just visiting for 2 to 3 months, why bother to open an account here? i don't get it.
