Open a revolut account

It is possible to open a revolut account in a few minutes, from your smartphone, without having to go to an agency or to contact an advisor. Just fill out the form provided for this purpose. The customer must however comply with some conditions, such as being of age. How to open a revolut account ? Find all the steps.

Which can open a revolut account ?

Revolut is a neobank, also called an account without a bank, which means that, unlike online banks or traditional banks, its subscription conditions are much more flexible. A large majority of the French population can thus open a revolut account. To be able to open an online account at Revolut, it is still necessary to respect the following three conditions:

  • Being older than 18
  • Reside in one of the countries of European Economic Space, Switzerland or Australia. Revolut is not yet accessible all over the world, but the neobank declares to work there.
  • Have a smartphone compatible with the Revolut application. This being a neobank, the bank account is managed entirely from his phone. Compatible devices are Apple Watches, Iphones or iPads with the iOS 10 or a later version, and phones with Android 6.0 or a later version. The smartphone must also have a minimum 3.5 -inch screen size. Note that Android tablets are not supported.

If these three conditions are met, the customer can open a revolut account, Even if it is banned banking. Accepting excluded banking is indeed a peculiarity of neobancs, which can be considered as banks for banking prohibitions.

On the other hand, it is requested to make a first payment on the account at the opening, for a minimum of € 10.

What are the supporting documents requested ?

Once again betting on flexibility, Revolut requires only few supporting documents to open an account. No need for proof of domicile, pay sheet or tax notice. Revolut only asks:

  • The photo of an identity document valid (Identity card or passport). Depending on the case, a residence permit may also be requested.

To prepare for account opening at Revolut, the customer simply needs to take out their identity card, then enter their smartphone.

Good morning. I try to open a revolut account but I cannot receive a code, as if I already have an account. Then I tried to take the process as if I have an account, and learning it gives me back to an email address that is not mine. By noting that the number is new and no one had access to it. It’s Lyca Mobile.

A priori, you have the possibility of opening an account at Revolut. It will therefore be necessary to proceed to the first payment confirming the opening of the account from booklet A of your son. Because the first payment must come from the same holder.

One of my friends was the victim of a financial scam. She paid a large sum using a RIB that the Revolut 21 domiciled scam in Lithuania gave her in Lithuania. How can we contact the bank in order to meet with a manager?
Thanks in advance

I try to know in vain if my revolut account is closed after 3 years of inactivity and without supply because I have lost all my data except the RIB.
What to do? Everything is in English and I don’t understand anything.

Bjr, how to account opened by another person for a third party. This account was closed and I did not identify or the phone of the person who opened this account. My salary remained on it. How to recover my money knowing that I only have an identity document to justify. No identifier or the number of this person. THANKS

by Joellyne de Captain Banque – February 14, 2022 Reply

Good morning,
If the account has been closed, this person had to provide a RIB for the money who remained on it was transferred. It will therefore not be possible to recover this money, the account no longer existing. However, you can try to get closer to the bank in which this account has been opened to find out more, without conviction that it agrees to give you more information. Specify, if this is the case, that you are not initiated by this account closure (in this case, the bank will advise you on the steps to follow, because this person would have made a registered letter to your name). We advise you to also get closer to your employer to present him a new RIB belonging to you to make a change of account and be able to touch your new salaries

Your revolut account is not linked to your phone. So, if you know your identifiers, you can perfectly download the Revolut app on any phone and connect.
