I'm an expat and I need a bank account in Nevada.

I'm an expat looking for a good bank that serves Nevada, if I can sign up.

I live in Asia and am attempting to relocate myself residence-wise to Nevada. Right now I'm a resident of New Hampshire and have 2 bank accounts there. One is at a local credit union which gives me great deals on things I need, like sending money home and withdrawing money from atms internationally. Bank of America is my other bank, which has horrible rates on a lot of stuff, but allows me to pay my credit cards easily.

So I've set up an address in Nevada and am now looking for a good bank that hopefully can do everything I want.

-Cheap fees / no fees on international wires
-Check Card
-No international atm fees (other than exchange rates)
-Billpay or some sort of system that allows me to pay off my credit cards
-Offers credit cards ( i think i want this, i guess i could get a credit card from elsewhere)
-Free online checking account with no or small minimum balance ($1000)
-I also sometimes get paid from my online income via check, so i should be able to endorse checks and mail them to the bank

Also I guess I should ask how hard it is going to be to sign up at these banks. I still have my New Hampshire license and have yet to receive any mail at my new address.

Best answer: I'm pretty sure that USAA has opened up it's banking eligibility to anyone. So try them out, they are an excellent bank. USAA is routinely praised on metafilter.

You can join Silver State Credit Union by donating to PBS:

I've used them as a physical location when I need to deal with my credit union back home and have always had good experiences. But I've never held an account directly with that.
