Offshore Tax Havens still issue International Banking Licenses
and capital requirements start as low as $25,000.00 for a restricted license issued in a highly respected financial centre.

Regulatory changes during the past few years have left only a few jurisdictions which still issue licenses for new bank startups. Some countries have stopped accepting new applications altogether while others have decided to issue licenses only to branches of internationally established banks. The few jurisdictions which do in fact welcome new private bank startups offer very reasonable qualification and capital requirements.  Minimum capital requirements start as low as $25K for a restricted Class B Banking License and from $250K for an unrestricted international license.
