Starting from 1.1.2020 Holvi will no longer onboard customers via the e-Residency program.
What does this mean for our existing customers?
Fortunately, nothing will change for you! The decision of not on boarding new e-residency customers will not affect your status as a Holvi customer in any way. Your account will remain unchanged, and nothing needs to be done from your side. Please know that we are committed to serving our customers in the best possible way, and this applies also to all e-residents who open Holvi accounts before 1.1.2020, at which times we will no longer accept customers via the e-Residency program.
Holvi began working with the e-Residency program in early 2017. The e-Residency program was looking for a partner to provide digital banking services to their customers all over the world, and we immediately fell in love with the idea. We were the first partner to provide online banking services for digital nomads and have since been serving thousands of e-residents around the world.
While we highly value the e-Residency program, providing services to customers outside of the EU was never part of our core strategy. The e-Residency program has established itself as a world famous and innovative program with several banking service providers on board. For that reason, we feel that now is a good time to focus on our core strategy – to make life easier for microbusinesses across Europe, to serve our customers and to become Europe’s Number 1 provider of entrepreneurship-as-a-service.
