Opening a bank account is very easy. You only need your passport and proof of address. In just a few minutes, you have your account available (in order) to deposit money and make payments. In addition, you can use online banking (in order) to pay invoices from home without going to the branch. (In order) to pay, you have two types of cards: debit or credit. We always have many opportunities (in order) to spend our money.

I'll be right with you...
