You can use the banks on paran just would need to go to the main branch to signup.

There's no simple way anymore to opening a free student account? Which bank on paran should I go to open one?
Cannot open on paran anymore for le'umi and poalim . Your other options are discount , Mizrahi and doar . Leumi isn't am option anymore entirely . Poalim will allow you to open an account in Kikar tzion branch as is with all foreigners now . You can deposit, transfer and withdraw at paran but anything above that will require you to go to the kikar tzion branch .

Bank Leumi just sent me a letter saying they are closing are accounts of foreigners with less then $50k. What other bank should i go with?
Update: I went into Poalim to open an account and they told me to fill out a form and if corporate approves me ill get a call to come back and open an account. They said out of the over 200 applications they received that month they approved less than 10. Obviously that call never came.
So i went back to Leumi to figure out what to do an asked if theres any way to leave the account open. She said sure, ill just change it over to an Israeli account with your visa. And thats what happened. Im still with Leumi.

You did all this with the Para branch of le'umi ?

Is that because you had an account already or can American students open account now for under a $50k deposit ?

No idea. Go to the foreign banking department in that branch and attempt.
