Thank you for the information abouy the TIN. I definitely will look into it.

And I'm sorry if my question was a bit unclear: my boyfriend was only interested in opening a savings account in U.S. dollars in order to maintain its current value (in order to avoid the consequences of devaluation). The banks in Argentine no longer maintain accounts in U.S. Dollars due to new legislation; all accounts are in pesos and the devaluation rate can fluctuate daily. He will maintain his local checking account containing 2 months of expenses in Argentina to pay bills of course. I just figured that with an online bank or a bank with online capabilities, he would be able to transfer funds between the two accounts easily. He's never been to the States so I didn't even consider a Stateside checking account.

Thanks again,
