Making life easier for Expats

Making life easier for expats

At HSBC Expat, we see your personal economy as much more than just numbers on a bank statement. It is something that's unique to you and constantly changing. We understand the opportunity that being an expat brings but also that without good planning, you might end up with bits of financial plans scattered across the continents.

Expat banking

Most expats have a bank account in their home country to manage financial commitments like property payments and school fees. You'll also need a bank account in the country where you're living to cover things like rent, utilities and shopping.

HSBC Expat allows you to link all your banking arrangements, giving you easy international access to your finances and a central home for your money. We can also help you with your multiple currency needs, enable fast and secure transfers between your accounts and provide 24/7 telephone and online banking support.

Managing your finances and tax obligations

We can provide the support you need as an expat to manage your finances and prepare for the future. And no matter how many times you move, we'll help you manage your money in line with one overall set of financial goals. We can also help you understand your tax obligations - both at home and abroad.

Going beyond banking

From country guides to the largest annual survey of expats, you'll have access to a range of expat resources to help you with the challenges of life abroad. You'll also be able to connect with a whole community of global expats through our social media channels, because we know that sharing real experiences is what life is all about.

Our commitment to helping our customers make the most of expat life has helped us win the Forum for Expatriate Management award for 'Best Expatriate Banking Service of the Year' for EMEA (2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) and Asia Pacific (2016).
