Does Your Bank In Spain Have A Copy Of Your ID?

Post by La Mancha on Sat Apr 25, 2015 12:12 pm

Your account could be frozen if your bank in Spain doesn’t have a copy of your passport before the end of April.

To comply with five-year old regulations on money-laundering Spanish banks are scrambling to get copies of ID documents for all their clients before the end of this month.

I have just received the confirmation letter from Caja Rural that needs returning by Thursday to comply. Not easy when the Moors and Christians is on this week Shocked

Even if you know that the bank saw your passport and tooks its details when you opened your account, it's a copy of your proof of identity that they need - they scan it into 'the system'. Lots of people in our local Caja Granada today doing this.
