It’s challenging to open a bank account in Hong Kong (CN) due to policy reasons. When applying for a Stripe account, a Hong Kong (CN) company is not required. You can choose to open a personal account. However, opening an account in your company’s name will provide more stability. We recommended that you register a Hong Kong (CN) company first.
