Safe deposit box for a non-resident

Greetings helpful people!

Can anyone suggest a bank (preferably a kantonalbank or a private bank) that will rent out a safe deposit box for a non-resident? I'm not a US citizen, if it makes any difference.

Thank you in advance.

Depends what kind of box your looking for, the Kantonal bank in Wiedikon (Zurich) offer 24h access boxes otherwise UBS or Kantonalbank on Bahnhofstrasse, there is a company which is based in Zurich Enge, cant remember there name but look for it if your interested who offer this kind of service for foreigners if you have no luck with the banks directly..

Re: Safe deposit box for a non-resident

Thank you very much for guiding me in the right direction, ukal123. I will contact Zuricher Kanotalbank for further inquiries.

Could you explain what types of boxes exist? I'm new to this, so I'm not sure what my choices are.

They have different sized boxes and the bigger the box the more rent you pay.

Re: Safe deposit box for a non-resident

Nixi, what you say is, of course, true. However, I don't think the choice of size depends on the bank and my non-resident status, so I believe ukal123 was referring another type of box classification.

Have you told big Angela you are bringing your money here? Obviously you will have paid your taxes, but maybe she would like to know - just for the statistics. And if you get caught at the airport it wil be confiscated.

No worries Sbrinz! I've called her mobile directly and she gave me the green light :-)
