Opening a bank account with APS Bank 


The International Student Savings Account is specifically designed for foreign students following tertiary education at the University of Malta. It is a basic account used to:

1)   Receive Scholarship funds;
2)   Pay tuition fees;
3)   Receive financial assistance;
4)   Receive subsistence allowances to manage day-to-day needs.

To open an International Student Savings Account, you must visit APS Bank’s Sliema Branch at 226, Tower Road, Sliema, SLM1600. The following documentation needs to be presented in order to proceed with the profile opening process:
  • Passport
  • University student identification card
  • Scholarship agreement (where applicable)
  • Home rental agreement / rental declaration clearly stating your details and the landlord’s
  • details
  • Utility bill (if available)
  • Bank reference and bank statements from your country of origin for the last 12 months (if available)
  • Police conduct certificate and Identity Malta certificate (Residence Permit/Card) (make sure you have the original residence card and not the application).
Following the submission of the above-mentioned documentation, the Bank will start its on-boarding process and any necessary due diligence procedures. After a few weeks, the Bank will invite you to visit its Sliema Branch again to finalise the opening of the International Student Savings Account.

During your second visit to the APS Sliema Branch, you will be asked to make an initial minimum deposit of €25 to activate the new account.

Following the account activation, you will be able to make deposits and withdrawals using your APS Student Premier Card at any APS or BOV ATMs.

You will also be able to carry out third-party payments and view transactions through the APS 365 Online internet banking service.
