i will stay in hk for 10 days and will open a hsbc or a hang seng bank account. i have few questions that i would like someone like pdlm who have an account with either of them to answer:
- when you register for internet banking, can you choose to collect the security device in a hsbc branch instaid of it being sent to your address overseas?
-was the security device sent using normal airmail or courier service?
-after the atm card expire, do you have to go to a branch in hk to receive the new one?
-after you register for internet banking, do you have access to all the fuction such as international wire transfer or do you have to activate these functions in a branch?
-when you go to the branch to open the account, do you have to pay the initial deposit in cash or can you make a wire after you get the account number?
i hope som one who have an account with either of them can answer, i don't want to contact their custumer service as it takes too long to get a response, and don't want to waste money in calling them
