Hi, We are in the starting process of getting Golden Visa with a view to retiring in Portugal from Hong Kong some time in the future. I've been an active member on our Hong Kong expat forum for 15 years so hoping this is the same:)
The last few days I have been trying to get the bank account open. We did hire advisors here in HK but they have not been very helpful. Novo Banco sent opening documents requiring notarisation and apostille service which will cost more than EU 1000 here in HK. So I tried Banco Atlantico which said it "took just a few minutes" to open an account online with video verification... well 5 hours of sitting in queues for the video and technical issues I gave up at midnight yesterday.
Anybody here know of a bank which does actually offer an account opening service which will not bankrupt me before I even arrive?
