I am currently in the US, as a European citizen, but planning to travel to Europe soon. I am looking to open an account in Europe before leaving the US, so I can wire some money before I leave the US to a European account.
HSBC is the only one which could help, but they require some kind of reason for the European account. Seems like they only accept things like, I have a new job there, I have a property there, I married a EU citizen, etc.
France would be the best (my relatives live in Hungary, but there is no HSBC in Hungary), because Global view and Global transfer works with French accounts.
