When you stay at accomodation, they need to give you a small confirmation on white card that you are staying at their place. Before going to the bank, please make sure you have it!

For bank account opening, we are providing service of documents preparations, but we can not guarantee bank will allow bank account opening, because the bank has the right to deny bank account opening without any explanation.
