  • An international needs review. We can examine your banking needs while you are living abroad, and help you plan, so you can be prepared in advance.
  • Overseas account opening. We can assist you in opening your bank accounts before you leave the U.S., subject to local terms and conditions.1
  • Checkbooks, bank cards, credit cards and PINs. If you give us enough notice we can have these materials sent to you before you change countries.

  • HSBC Credit history transfer. You can experience a seamless transfer of your HSBC credit history to other HSBC offices in countries that the HSBC Group currently does business in.
