Is this possible anymore? A year ago a friend of mine opened an account at ChinaTrust with just his passport.
Ive heard that it is impossible without an ARC to open accounts at government banks but is quite possible at privately owned banks like E.Sun.
Not the case it seems. I went to Esun and they would not let me open an account without an ARC or permission from the foreign affairs police.
Is there any bank in Taiwan that will let me open an account with just my passport?
