on the Cyprus forum:
Anyone out there who could recommend a bank in N. Cyprus? I will be living here for 1 year, but I need to transfer money to the US. Thanks!
HSBC has a presence in N Cyprus and also in the US. Could be your best bet.
I am moving to South Cyprus in October 2014 and am wondering, as a US citizen with a banking account in the US, what would be the best bank in Cyprus to open an account.
Just visited my bank here in Cyprus and was asked to sign some documents related to FATCA (bank-generated forms) and provide a copy of my SS card.
Also, not sure what impacts FATCA is having on opening accounts here in Cyprus. I opened my account in 2008 and have had no issues with FATCA affecting my account (knock on wood).
