Opening a bank account in South Korea
Currently, South Korea is among the top leading countries with a highly developed economy. Large foreign investment, the development of high technology, stable financial situation within the country makes it an extremely profitable place to store your own (or corporate) deposits. Therefore, opening a bank account in South Korea is a good option for storing your funds.
There are currently three main types of banking institutions in South Korea:
The first two types can relate to both private and public financial institutions. The third is exclusively in state ownership. So what exactly distinguishes them besides the form of ownership?
The main difference lies in the timing of account registration. In a private South Korean bank, registration will take no more than 20 minutes (for this, the client needs to show the bank employees only an identification card).
In state-owned banks, this procedure undergoes extremely strict control by the relevant authorities, and requires much more time. Also, the investor will be required to provide a rather impressive package of documents, and confirm the legitimacy of their income (the legality of their origin). But this aspect is more than compensated by the utmost degree of deposit protection and the quality of service.
