    The title is pretty self explanatory but basically, I have no one to watch my nearly two year old whilst I go into a bank to apply for a new account so just wondered if most banks allow you to do it over the telephone as she'd be a nightmare while I applied at a bank! haha.

    Thanks in advance xx

    Not as far as I'm aware.

    Most banks will let you apply online or, as you know, at a meeting in branch.

    You can apply for an account online at most banks. They typically require a final identity-proving step involving seeing some documents such as passport, bills, driving license, etc. You can do that final bit via scanned docs with some banks.
