Can I open an account with Airwallex?

This article explains which businesses may be eligible for an Airwallex account and some restrictions Airwallex has in granting accounts.

Airwallex only offers Business Accounts at this time, and cannot provide accounts to individuals for personal use. Due to different restrictions and regulations, there are a few limitations on the types of businesses and transactions we can support. Please see below to better understand if we can support your business. 

Can I open a personal account?

No, at this time Airwallex is only for Businesses. Our accounts are strictly for the purpose of business transactions where goods or services are sold, either to a business or an individual.

Can I apply if I am a citizen of Russia or Belarus?

Russian and Belarusian citizens can certainly apply for an Airwallex business account as long as you have a registered business. However, we can't yet onboard businesses registered in Russia or Belarus just yet.

As a global business providing financial services, we will continue to comply with all applicable economic sanctions laws that are legally binding upon the business.

Which business industries are supported? 

Certain business types are restricted from using Airwallex due to government regulations and/or increased risk of money laundering and terrorism financing. These include but are not limited to investment firms, arms dealers, gambling companies, pharmaceutical companies and charities.

To see the full list, please see our Terms & Policies by region.
