    Hi! Ai'm trying to open a bank account in Natwest and it appears that my previous address (for the last 3 years) must be within the UK, Gibraltar, Isle of Men and some more places, there are no other countries to choose from. I don't understand that, thought this account was for international students who obviously just moved from all around the world. Could someone explain?

    Beautystyle has linked you o a point which just says previous address fr three years. It doesnt say UK address, so you need to clarify that with the bank. I think its just your hone address, even if its outside the UK. As you point out that would be impossible for most international students.

    They ask due to security/ money laundering reasons. Just call them if you cant see an option on the website.

    Tens of thousands of international students come to the UK every year ab they all manage to open an account so dont worry.
