How does a US & Polish citizen obtain a Polish bank account? (Without residency in Poland)

I am living in America currently. I do have Polish citizenship with a Polish passport. I just recently got my Polish passport by showing the Polish Embassy my family bloodline history and all of that. My plan is to move to Poland in about 5 years or so and I just want to get everything set up.

So if I am living in the USA and have a Polish passport with me being a citizen of Poland, what's left there for me to do? From what I have read on the internet is that you need to show them proof of residency/resident card. I live in the US and do not live in Poland.. Can I just show them that I live in the USA? Is my USA address good enough? Or does it really have to be a Polish address? Can I give them one of my family members address that lives in Poland?

It depends ob the bank so check each bank. Mbank used to be more lenient but that was several years ago. Most will require at least a PESEL.

There is no reason to do it five years in advance - it will be much simpler and cheaper to do it once you are here and have your meldunek

You would need to open the bank account in person. I am British, live in UK and have an account with Alior bank, with a UK address and I do not have a Pesel. I would find a bank and send them an email.
