You can open a Revolut bank account in minutes via the app. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and is available for all Apple products with iOS 11 or newer and all Android phones with 5.0 Lollipop or newer. Android tablets aren’t currently supported.
Once you’ve got the app, you’ll be prompted to enter some personal details such as your phone number, home address and email address. Your account will now be open but before you can use it, you need to verify your identity. Simply upload a clear photo of your ID, such as your passport or driving licence, alongside a picture of your face.
When you’ve added money to your Revolut bank account, you can order a card. You’ll have to pay for the delivery of the card if you have a Standard account. But if you can’t wait to get spending, you can add a virtual card to your phone’s wallet instantly. It’s also possible to create a disposable virtual card. They’re suitable for one-time, online transactions. Your card details automatically regenerate after each transaction made using a disposable virtual card so they give you an extra layer of security for online transactions and protect your account against online card fraud.
