Has anyone tried approaching any banks that normally require in-person meetings to see if they have waived this requirement due to current worldwide conditions? (HK/SG/CH etc...)

Maybe some have switched to video conferencing for the time being?

I've seen reports about that being the case in Hong Kong and Singapore (at least OCBC and DBS), not sure about Switzerland.

I don't think we can expect video conference to 100% replace in person meeting just yet, but for easily understood businesses that fit within the banks' risk appetite, it sounds possible though I haven't verified it personally.

for existing account holders... LILALI2X skips face to face procedures right now and allows everything to take place over e-mail with smartphone photos... but this is only for existing account holders. new accounts still need to be opened in person and the clerk just keeps a 2-meter distance and sprays each document you hand over to her before she reviews it
