Singapore Bank Account
Ozbargainer in SG here!
So I've been living in SG for 2-months, originally for a 3-month stay. But it looks like my stay is going to be extended further. Pretty happy about that, enjoying it here! So much so that I'm thinking about opening a bank account haha.
I have a CitiBank Plus account back in Australia, it would be perfect if I can open a CitiBank account here to take advantage of CitiBank Global Transfers. But it seems like the CB accounts here have a high opening balance (and a fee for not maintaining it) or are only open to locals. Am I missing something?
Any cheap alternatives worth considering? I'm a student if that helps (on a training-type work pass). Not looking to earn interest, just basic functionality (deposit/debit card) and reasonable overseas transfers for when I head home.
