    Bank account transfer

    I currently have a salary/savings account with citibank in India from my previous company back home. Is it possible to get that account transferred to citibank here in HK? I have changed jobs and now I need an account to get my salary every month. Also, I have seen lot of threads beating down HSBC's service, are there any such issues with Citi that never sleeps?
    Many thanks for your advise...

    My guess would be that if you are a Citi Gold customer then your relationship manager should be able to arrange it.

    Thanks PDLM, but I am not Gold member.
    I just got off the phone with the Citibank customer "service" and I was told that "You can go for Non-Resident option where you can't get most of the services and we'll charge you higher than normal bank account. But, there's another option, you can close this account in India and open an account directly with Citi in HK."
