I want to open an account with a bank in a foreign country, UK. I live
in California (CA). The bank requests, in order for them to comply with
regulations, that I provide proof of identity and residence address by
sending them a form accompanied by *notarized copies of documents* such
as my ID or passport, and a utility bill, tax form, or bank statement
showing my address.
But no CA notary can/will perform this certification process. I have
called various notaries, and lawyers, and it seems nobody has a
solution. Perhaps I can get an official transcript of my IRS tax
return. I will find out if that will satisfy them. Or an original bank
statement instead of a copy.
I will call the DMV on Monday to see if they can give me a certified
copy of my ID.
I don't have much confidence in the DMV.
Can anyone produce a certified copy of a passport?
It seems the requirements in UK don't understand the limitations of
notaries in the USA, and also they assume that there is some public
office where a government official performs this service.
What other options are there to get certified copies of documents such
Thanks for input.
