3. We will pass this information to the Swiss bank and this is where our service ENDS. Further communications will occur between you and the bank only, without our intermediation. 
4. After few days (one/two weeks - depending on where you live) you will receive an envelope from the bank containing some forms to compile, the terms and conditions of your account, and a prepaid envelope to send back to the bank the compiled forms. 
5. When the bank will receive your envelope your new account will be operative. 
The timeframe for all these steps is anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks, depending on your location. A customer from France wrote us that the Opening Kit arrived in three days from Switzerland, another customer from India told us that it took 8 days to reach her location.
