Sorry in advance if wrong forum - wasn’t sure quite where this one fit…
A friend of a friend has recently moved from France to the UK to spend a year learning English.
He is looking to set up a bank account - I was going to recommend Starling due to the ease of setup and lack of need to go to a physical bank.
I’m not sure however what credit/ID checks Starling runs… he obviously has no UK credit history so is there any point him applying - would he be just instantly rejected?
Thanks as ever to the forum for their wisdom.
