Alpaca as a non-US citizen

Dear Alpaca team,

As a non-US citizen, is it possible for me to deposit fund to Alpaca and start trading?

In Sweden where I am from we have special investment accounts that are exempt from capital tax but when I invest in the US I have to pay capital tax in Sweden. Therefore, I am wondering if you have any plans of expanding Alpaca to Europe and Sweden.

Best regards,

Hello Alpaca,

Same problem here, but from France.
Hope you’ll find a way to expand your business to Europe: looking forward to trade decently liquid US ETFs :slightly_smiling_face:

Same here. Would be great if you can enable trading accounts for EU countries.

Have you tried recently?

Hi Hitoshi,
I have just checked it and it seems that many EU countries are already enabled (Sweden, France, Germany…), but for some reason Czech Republic not. If you have brokerage entity compliant with EU regulation on KYC, AML, etc., then you should be able to provide services in other EU countries as well.

Can you please verify that the issue is not just with the registration form you have linked?


Hi! Same request for Belgium and Romania would it be possible to add these two EU countries to the list?
