Have a look on Which.
My Thai wife has been living and working in the UK with me on a settlement visa for 1 year, we have managed to save up £20k in her Metro bank account as we are planning on using savings for her next stage of settlement visa. Metro out of the blue have just closed her account and now we are stuck trying to find a bank that will offer her an account.
Has anyone else had similar problems with their Thai wife and any advice of where she can get a basic account
Not sure how they work as haven't looked into it, but would a Transferwise account work like a current account ?
We'll never win the Premier League,
We'll never win a Cup,
We'll still follow UNITED !!
Get her a monzo account. Super easy to set up and really good for managing your money
If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.
Nationwide were very good getting Nok set up when she first arrived.
Seems odd that they just closed her account, with 20K in it.
A lot of money for them to lose without some very good reason I would have thought.

Very strange. Metro was the bank that gave my wife an account when none of the others would.
My wife has opened an account with Santander and it looks like with no problems. She also has a join account with Nationwide and they have also given her a loan account all without me
My wife opened up a bank account with Barclays with no problems.
Not a bank i would rush to push money into ...................................
METRO WHO ARE YOU WHO ARE YOU ?
Free newspaper on the train or bus .
Nation wide or Barclays is as 123 if you have an account even if you do not as long as she is working .
