The N26 Bank account was voted the best account worldwide. Therefore, in addition to the free opening fee, no fees are charged. Also, it is worth remembering that account opening can be done online 100% and it only takes about 8 minutes to open the account.

However, the N26 is not yet available to Brazilians, and is still in the testing phase. Thus, to gain access to the account it is necessary to enter a queue.
