How to create a virtual USD Account

Create Grey virtual accounts

If you have already created a Grey account and have created a EUR or GBP account, you only need to request a USD account. There is no need to submit any additional information; we will notify you via email once your account is processed.

However, if you are new to Grey, the process is straightforward:

  1. Sign up for a Grey account - this should only take a couple of minutes. We have written a guide to help you successfully create an account.
  2. Complete your KYC - Know Your Customer (KYC) helps us verify your identity and protect your account.
  3. Request for a USD account - On your dashboard, click on “Get your IBAN”. You will be re-directed to the virtual accounts screen, where you’ll select “United States Dollar Account”. Here, you will upload your identification to help process your account creation. Once this request is submitted, we will create your virtual account within three days. Then, you will be able to send and receive money with your new USD account.
