Opening a bank account in Barcelona is the most convenient and safe way to handle money. All banks accept foreigners as customers but each bank has its own conditions. In general, to open a bank account the bank will ask whether your documents in Spain are in order. The IED has an agreement with La Caixa for opening accounts with just a passport, so you can open an account there as soon as you arrive. To do this, go to the office nearest to the school in the street Torrent de l’Olla, 193-197
Carrer de Torrent de l’Olla, 193-197 08012 Barcelona
Tel. 93 229 86 30
You should arrange an appointment by email or telephone and say that you are IED student.
