A bank account should be opened as soon as possible so that the monies you received at the airport may be deposited.
In addition, financial assistance that you will later receive from the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption and National Insurance grants will be deposited in this account.
In the case of an immigrant family - the bank account must be registered in the name of both spouses!
Documents that you will need to open a bank account:
immigration certificate of both spouses, or, notarized power of attorney if one cannot come to the bank.
