How long it will take to open an account?
It varies from bank to bank. Accounts at some traditional banks can take the better part of an afternoon, while others take significantly less time. Of course, you should keep in mind all of the advice here to make sure you find an account that best suits your needs, but if speed and flexibility are important to you, keep an eye out for accounts with a strong focus on mobile banking.
