Who can request them?

All credit institutions offering payment accounts shall be obliged to offer basic payment accounts to potential customers who:

  • Reside legally in the European Union, even if they do not have a fixed address.
  • Are asylum seekers.

  • You are already the holder of a current account in Spain.
  • The opening of the account is against the interests of national security or public order.
  • You do not provide the information requested by the institution to comply with its obligations regarding money laundering or terrorist financing.
