FAQ

What is a SMART account?

SMART account is a bank account opened completely online, without visiting the bank in person. When you open a SMART account, you also get a VISA Classic or MasterCard Standard card free of charge, and 24/7 Online Banking with access to manage accounts and perform operations.

How do I open an account online?

Opening SMART accounts online is easy and simple.

  • Fill in the application form
  • Take a photo of your ID and a selfie
  • Select a complimentary payment card and delivery mode
  • Register in Online Banking to manage your account remotely

Once the bank approves your application, you will be able to log into Online Banking and perform certain operations (see further for details). In order to be able to use all available services freely, without restrictions, and to activate your card you will be required to pass full identification via a video call or by visiting us in person. If you are a non-resident citizen of Armenia, your full identification will be performed in accordance with appropriate internal procedures of the bank.

During which days/hours can I open a SMART account?

You can apply for a SMART account online whenever you like.

Can I open a SMART account, if I am abroad?

Yes, you can open SMART accounts also from abroad. All you need is a personal identification document such as Armenian passport, Armenian ID or social card, and a smartphone with internet or a webcam-equipped PC.

Can I open a SMART account, if I am a foreign national resident in Armenia?

Currently only citizens of the Republic of Armenia can open online SMART accounts.

What is the difference between accounts with restricted access and full-access current accounts?

When you apply online, an account with restricted access is opened for you which you can use until you pass full identification in accordance with the laws of Armenia and internal regulations of Ameriabank. With restricted access you can perform certain bank operations.

Once you pass full identification, you will get full access to your current account which means that now you can also make payments to accounts of other persons as well as payments between your own accounts, deposit and withdraw cash and exchange currency.

Accounts (either with restricted or full access) are opened based on your application within 1 business day

What operations can I perform via account with restricted access?

You can perform the following operations via account with restricted access:

  • Transfers between your own accounts with daily limit of 400,000 Armenian drams or foreign currency equivalent
  • Transfers within Ameriabank accounts
  • Currency exchange
  • Utility payments
  • Payments to state budget
  • Payments of traffic tickets
  • You can also submit applications for services available at that time in Online Banking

How can I make my SMART account with restricted access an unrestricted one?

To gain unrestricted access to banking operations via your SMART account you need to pass full identification via a video call or by visiting us in person. To schedule a video call, log into Online Banking, click “restricted” and select date and time.

What is a video call?

During the video call, our employee completes the identification of the person opening an account online. The video call is recorded. Once you pass full identification, you can gain unrestricted access to your account and activate your payment card. You can fix the date and time for your video call when submitting the SMART account application.

During the video call, you will be required to answer several questions about who you are and what you do.
