Not sure of the deposit but you will your residency visa in order to open a bank account and also as I remember, your passport (copies).

As I recall you don't have to deposit anything in there as long as you have your company sign a form or something stating that they will direct your wages into that account. If you have your wages directed elsewhere then a sum may be required.

Nothing for a basic account - you will need passport/visa copies - once ur visa is applied for - u can open the account with a company letter - also the comapny has to sign a letter of gaurantee regarding the ammount of money they willpay in!!

Its worth shopping around - especially if u plan to buy property in the future as certain banks are good mortgage providers.

Also if u can get real Emirates airmiles with the account its most beneficial - several banks give these.

If u have a HSBC account - get one here - money transfers home can be done by interenet banking.
