Personal Loan With ITIN Number

Getting approved for a personal loan with an ITIN number, or an ITIN mortgage loan, is possible. In fact, if you know where and how to apply, the entire process can be rather straightforward.

But that requires navigating a number of important considerations, including the following:

  • Being able to open a US bank account
  • Demonstrating creditworthiness
  • Providing acceptable proof of income

There are many more considerations that you will need to navigate as well. However, these three are often the most challenging for foreign non-residents to navigate.

Letโ€™s take a closer look at each of these considerations.

Being Able to Open a US Bank Account

Opening a US bank account is the first step in getting approved for a personal loan as a foreign non-resident. This is because most of the institutions that will lend to a foreigner with an ITIN are banks in the United States.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to open a non-resident US account or a vacation savings account, you also have options.

Regardless of the account type, youโ€™ll need to navigate the process of account opening before you can apply. That said, opening a US bank account as a foreign non-resident can be very challenging. This is especially true if you are looking to open an account without visiting the United States.

In fact, most sources on the internet even say itโ€™s impossible. But, our team helps foreign non-residents open US bank accounts all the time, including without visiting the US in person.

Demonstrating Credit Worthiness

Not surprisingly, before a financial institution is going to be willing to lend money to you, they will want to know that you are a trustworthy borrower. This is especially true if you are looking for a loan with just an ITIN number. In other words, can they realistically expect that you will pay them back?

To assess your creditworthiness, banks will want to see a history of your past debts and payments, which is your credit history.

Of course, if you are applying for a personal loan in the United States, banks will ideally want to see your US credit history. However, not all foreign non-residents are able to demonstrate credit history. With this in mind, there are banks that are willing to accept foreign credit history as well.

Providing Acceptable Proof of Income

The final consideration that weโ€™ll discuss in this article is providing acceptable proof of income. Unfortunately, if you do not have US-sourced income, this can be a challenge.

That said, the banks that our members apply to when they want a loan with just an ITIN number are capable of accepting foreign-sourced income and related proofs.

In certain cases, this may require you to provide tax documentation showing how much you have earned in the past two to four years. In other instances, banks may accept statements from certified professionals such as chartered accountants.
