Which banks in Poland have online banking in English?

Mbank don't.



Background*
A mate of mine needs internet banking for Poland but doesn't speak a word of Polish and I am not going to translate every time he wants to do something ;)

Citibank's website can be completely in English (and so can their telephone banking, plus they always have English-speaking staff available).

I will be opening up a bank account in the next week or so. I currently have a bank account with Bank of America in the US (since they are part of the global alliance for atms... which has come in use multiple times). If I open an account here with Citi or HSBC, will I be able to use this bank account for przelewy from my job in Poland?

If so, I'd rather take care of the account here rather than in Poland.

Screw him. There's no excuse for that.

If you just use Google Chrome as a browser it has an automatic translator on it, way faster than that sh*te Firefox/IE

Alior Bank. Website in Polish and English and setting up my account was done in less than 30mins. Everytime i've needed something done staff have been more than helpful and made life easy.

Alior are good, but I prefer Nordea. They have an English version of their website and are generally cheap and efficient.

Deutsche has the best online service in my opinion.

Resident or non resident account, it makes a difference to which bank he can use?

He lives in Ireland but he can use my address for mailing.

I thought he could use any bank here in Poland, that you don't need to be a resident?
What's the difference?

The paperwork you provide, it will be a lot harder to open an account in some banks as a non res ( which he is). Millenium and Bank Zachodni WBK SA seen to be non res friendly.

Merged: Polish e-banking in English

I read several recommendations for the Millenium bank and their branch with English-speaking staff. Do they or another Polish bank also have e-banking in English? It seems the ones who have e-banking work only in Polish.
(French or Spanish work for me too but I assume English is more likely to be found)

Try ING and WBK as they both have their portals in English.

Yes I can confirm that the Millenium bank has internet banking in English as I have used it myself for five years http://www.bankmillennium.pl/en/individuals/ and just toggle the options at the top of the page.

I find BZ BWK to be fine, their e banking is in english. When I went into the branch ( in katowice), they had a guy there speaking english, and he showed me everything. He was there when i picked up my visa debit card and showed me how to use the atm machine(it was the same as any atm but still, nice).

When I had a problem in Krakow with the card, it was okay for a transfer, their staff knew enough english.

I have Alior and they have English translations for all of their pages, including when I'm logged into my account. It's nice.
