How To Open A Revolut Account In The UK. (2023 guide)
Revolut is one of the most popular neo-banks in the United Kingdom, and for good reason: it's quick to open an account and start banking directly compared to traditional banks. Since its founding in 2015, Revolut has amassed more than 25 million retail customers and 500,000 business customers.
If you are a new immigrant to the UK, Revolut is one of your best options for getting started with the finance system there. Opening a personal standard account is free, and you can easily create one from your mobile phone in minutes.
We break down the steps involved in creating a Revolut account below.
