In this article,we are not applying for a bank account; please be aware of that. What we are simply applying for is an ATM debit card, and this entitles us to a free US bank account with Meta Bank of America. As soon as you finish signing up with them, your account will be ready for use immediately. At this stage, you can access your bank account details, do transfer and all that stuff, but you won’t be able to withdraw till you receive your free debit card which you’ll receive in ten days with your name fully and boldly embossed on it.
To register for an account you’ll need a US address because they only send debit cards to US addresses only. So you’ll have to find a way to register with a US address. That’s the only way to receive your card.
Here are 3 options that work in receiving your home country:
Do you have anybody in the US that could help you ship the card to your home country? Then simply register with his/her address but be sure to inform him/her first before you do that, because your card will get there in 10days with your full name printed on it. You don’t want to surprise them, right?

• Aluminum plan (setup $5 plus rate $4.99 = $9.99)
• Silver plan (setup $19.99 plus rate $4.99 = $24.98)Gold plan (setup $19.99 plus rate $9.99 = $29.98). This is the option you should choose.
It’s only the Gold plan that will work for this, so as soon as your card gets to them, they’ll notify you it to any country of your choice.
Option Three (Highly Recommended)
Search Google for reliable freight forwarders that make shipments to your country. You’ll get tons of links and resources; contact those who have offices in the US only like www.murphyship.com, www.orderbay.com, etc, just search Google. Once you’ve found a forwarder of your choice, simply mail them telling them of your incoming good, tell them your shipment will go straight to their office in the US and then they will move it down to your country for you. So collect their full US office address and use it for your registration. Find out how much it will cost to get your item to your country before you make use of them. Please do your due diligence before settling for one.
