So I'm going to be moving to Vietnam next month (for at least 2 years) and have most things organised but I'm still not sure what's best to do banking wise. I've seen branches like CitiBank and HSBC offering expat accounts but you usually need a minimum account balance of about $100K which I don't have. Is it better to just open an account over there and transfer funds as you need them? I was thinking of doing that but was unsure if it'd be viable since I'd guess my account in the UK could possibly get locked for using it abroad?
Any advice is appreciated.
