Is is usual for all banks to ask you to deposit 1000 euro to open an account?? friend from UK is looking at buying an apartment here as comes every 2-3 months. So she is trying to open an account with BOC. she has shown me the application form she has downloaded which says need to deposit 1k. and show 6 months bills as proof she is resident here.
well of course she isnt and wont be as only needs bank account for when buys holiday home

I certainly didnt put in a large amount of money when opened my account 3 years ago. only about 200 not paying in more till actually moved here months later.

have advised her next time she is here to go into a branch explaining not resident and see if can deposit a smaller amount.
Suppose she could pay the 1k and withdraw most of it once account is open
