Opening a bank account in Zimbabwe

Hi all,

is it difficult for expats to open a bank account in Zimbabwe ?

Which documents are required to open a bank account in Zimbabwe ?

How long does it take to open it ?

Is there any restriction for expats regarding the services (loans for instance)  ?

Which bank would you recommend ?

Thanks in advance for your participation,


Hi Julien, did you get some advice on banking and finance? Which bank to recommend etc?
