ermm.. i'm not sure, my parents hold a bank account there, but we lived there for 2 years and had SSID's and everything, so I'm not entirely sure, but you probably can...
Is it possible for nonresidents to open a US bank account?
I don't feel safe keeping money in PayPal, and the USD is so crap theres no point sending it home and losing 50% on currency.
ru a citizen? i thought ssid were for citz?
