yes -- but do not be surprise if you have to seek a manager since the clerk in the new accounts dept may not be up on all of the requirements!!!

Yes, there is a form on the irs website called a w8-Ben. With that form it let's non resident aliens set up accounts without a social security number and with a foreign address. You'll need your passport and another form of identifying information to set it up. Anyone in the new accounts department should be able to assist you with that. There may be a few that don't have proper training in it, but most do. Good luck.
