Hi @Deirdre We are with RBC and managed to open account while in SA (this was at the end of 2018). Have you tried emailing Sergio at RBC? His email is sergio.fantini@rbc.com and he helped me. Again, this was 2 years ago but you can give it a try. I've been happy with them. We went into the branch 2 days after arriving in Toronto early last year and they are super friendly and no bank fees for 1 year for new comers.

Hi @Deirdre, I opened my RBC account late last year from SA, and got the cards and everything when I activated my PR in Vancouver in December.

I can forward the lady's details who helped me. She was (and still is) extremely helpful. PM me if you are interested.

Sergio also helped me open my account with RBC whilst I was still in SA.
