Can I Open a Rho Account if I Don't Live in the U.S.?

Am I an eligible customer based on my location?

Rho partners with Banks to offer accounts to business owners worldwide, however, entities must be incorporated in the United States, and hold a US Address. Rho offers accounts to business owners that reside in all countries except for certain restricted countries that are sanctioned or prohibited.

As a U.S. company, Rho and its affiliates must comply with U.S. law, including trade sanctions administered and enforced by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). To further reduce risk, fraud and illegal activities, Rho and its partners prohibit additional high-risk locations. For a full list of the prohibited or ineligible geographic locations, see below:
