Hello /r/eupersonalfinance ! I come with a very importamt question.
My ex for lack of a better term, is an non-citizen Ukrainian immigrant who has lived in Italy since age 7. She has recently reclocated to Russia to help her ailing grandmother in Kazan. I recently had her open a Paypal account and have sent some funds to help in her journey but she apparently doesn’t have a bank account to send the funds to.
I also want to set up a GoFundMe to help her in this very difficult time and the lack of bank account complicates things. I’m hoping for her funds to remaij in EU currency.
What are my options to helping her get a bank account remotely? I have read about Revolut but I don’t think it will help in this situation.
I called Charles Swaub and they do not handle European prpducts anymore so it seems the options are slim.
As an American I was quite ahocked she didn’t have one. It is mandatory here.
