HSBC Expat | How To Register

Registering is easy - and it only takes a few minutes

All you need is:

  • An active HSBC Expat account,
  • Your 10-digit Personal Banking Number (PBN),
  • Your 6-digit Direct Banking PIN, and
  • An HSBC Expat Secure Key.

You'll find your PBN on the welcome letter (or email) we sent when you opened your account with us. We also posted your Direct Banking PIN and Secure Key to you separately in two other envelopes. As part of the registration process, you will need to accept our Online Banking Terms and Conditions. You can download a copy of our Online Banking Terms and Conditions from the Download Centre.

Before you register, we strongly recommend that you install Trusteer Rapport security software.

Rapport will lock down the connection between your internet browser and HSBC, preventing any malicious software from monitoring what you type. Rapport is designed to compliment your existing anti-virus software.
