Set up Your UK Bank Account before You Leave India


The UK is a dream destination for many professionals, particularly nurses and other health professionals. Once you are through the employment process, you must also require certain fundamental essentials to live in the UK, such as a savings bank account, speaking of savings bank account, every person or employee must hold a savings bank account in the UK, to draw the salary and other monetary benefits. Usually, the UK bank accounts can be opened by directly visiting the branch or online and may consume up to a week. Although the UK has lifted the restrictions, nurses travelling to the UK would need to undergo mandatory 14 days quarantine after reaching the UK as per the country’s Covid guidelines and will have no means to open the account during the quarantine period.
