The services of Georgian banks got very popular today. One of the big advantages for foreign residents is the possibility of opening a bank account in Georgia remotely. Many services of Georgian banks are so attractive for reasons of privacy protection. Georgia has not signed or expressed the intention to sign any international agreements on the automated tax information exchange. Thanks to that, Georgian banks today do not have to disclose information about their clients to the third countries. In this regard, we would like to offer you the service of the private bank account remote opening with the Bank of Georgia (SOLO VIP BANKING) located in Georgia.
