Sabadell Checking Account
Studentfy and Banco Sabadell have become partners to offer international students the option to open a checking account when they arrive here with no NIE needed, monthly fees, debit card fees or opening fees.
Most banks require a NIE and the process takes 30 to 45 days to acquire one. This is why through our partnership, you do not need a NIE to open the bank account and can open your bank account the day you arrive in Barcelona.
Banco de Sabadell, S.A. (Catalan: Banc Sabadell) is the fifth-largest bank in Spain. It is a universal bank and specializes in serving small and medium enterprises (SMEs). It has a network of 2,873 branches (2,204 domestic and 669 international) and 11.4 million customers.
At the moment we are working with 4 branches of Sabadell and you can open your account only at these four branches.
