Hi! I know there are some banks that have branches in both Taiwan and the US (e.g., Bank of Taiwan and HSBC). Is it possible to open a personal bank account in the US with one of these banks, get an ATM card, then use that same account and ATM card when you arrive in Taiwan?
I’m just wondering because it seems easier to open an account in the US, where I am (I assume) more likely to be able to communicate with the people at the bank, than to do it after I get to Taiwan.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
