Banking with an online bank

We've noticed that online banks have become very popular amongst our recent international students.

Online banks like Revolut, Wise and N26.

This has it advantages, in the sense that you don't need to provide the bank with Belgian Residency card. Proof of residency of a supported country is enough. If you want to know more about the pro's and cons of online banking, check out Investopedia's article on the topic.
