Hi all,

Will be going Shenzhen this weekend to attempt to open a bank account so that I can use WeChat Pay - fining it very difficult to travel and pay for things in China without WeChat Pay.

Anybody here managed to open a local Chinese bank account using a singapore passport and standard visa-free entry? Especially recently.. heard the rules tightened earlier this year and might have to try even more branches nowadays.

Mind sharing what few questions they were?
What sort of documents required? Anything else required?


Else, your post is relatively useless information. Thanks.
