If you are looking for a place to share your travel photos and stories, then try BigRoom.

you do not understand : money to someone and money that someone can spent !
so the right question is : can i spent my money when it is mine ?
money in a bank means that owner is the bank; adult or not, whith or whitout the laws...
so, how to do ? take a card allows you to do it.
(yes, an one year old child can have money and account ... and do you think that he knows it ?)

There are some limitation in each country like in india minimum age is 18 and 16 for the students.

Same as in UK the age limit is different and also the document verification process is different....!!!
So go to nearer bank and inquiry for that or go online to get solution but as per my opinion you need to go for offshore bank accounts online; will get better results..!!!

In order to open a current account, you must be minimum of 18 years of age. If you are opening the account for business purpose then all the documents related to your business would be required. However, in case of savings account even a minor can open an account. For more details, see here: https://www.dtbk.dtbafrica.com/for-you/bank/accounts/savings-accounts
