開戶 (開個人戶) Opening A Personal Account
Bank teller: Hello, may I help you?
Customer : I would like to open an account with your bank.
Bank teller: Do you live nearby?
Customer : Yes, I live nearby. Why do you ask this question?
Bank teller: To fight against fraud, the bank has the responsibility to prevent accounts from being used as dummy accounts. Therefore, according to the regulations, if you want to open an account, you must go to the bank where your household registration is located. Don’t tell me that because you admire our bank, you have come a long way to our bank to open an account. We won’t buy it.
Customer : So what you mean is if I live in Shilin District, I cannot go to the banks in Beitou district to open an account.
Bank teller: Yes, exactly. Now all the banks follow this rule. So if you do not live nearby, we must decline your request of opening an account with our bank.
Customer : I see.
