A. Due to money laundering regulations all banks require you to prove your identity and address when opening a UK bank account. Therefore you will need to show 2 forms of identification before your bank account is opened. One has to be proof of identity (e.g. passport) and one has to be proof of address (e.g. utility bill). The types of proofs accepted are fairly universal. The bank you open a bank account with will provide a suitable list of acceptable documents. If you have been on the electoral register for some time some banks will often take this as proof of identity and will not require further identity checks. Business bank accounts also require proof of your business such as a letter of incorporation in the case of a limited company. To receive a UK issued prepaid Visa or MasterCard you will usually need to provide your passport or driving licence number plus they may ask for proof of address such as a utility bill.
