Israeli bank ONE ZERO will only accept those with US citizenship in 2023, and they will not be eligible for free “Founder” accounts.
In an exchange with a ONE ZERO representative, No Fryers has learned two pieces of unfortunate news for those who hold American citizenship in Israel.
- Accepting Americans in 2023: The bank promises to accept American citizens, something Pepper Bank does not. And it will allow Israelis with American citizenship to open accounts digitally. However, they will not be ready to accept them until 2023.
- Only paid accounts will be available: You may have signed up for the waiting list and are waiting to be offered one of the coveted Founder accounts, which entitle the account holder to free banking for life. That benefit will not be available for individuals who have to wait to become customers until they begin accepting Americans.
