Finally an Update for Non-US Resident Alpaca Users

Invite Only Beta Live-Trading for Non-US Resident Alpaca Users

We want to let you know that we have started an invite-only beta program for non-US resident Alpaca users to open live-trading accounts ✌️.

If you are interested in this, please fill out the form below to be on the list.

Alpaca International Live Trading Account: Interest Indication Form
Alpaca international live-trading account is now invite-only beta ✌️! Please voice your interest here to stay updated for us to onboard you. We are working to remove certain restrictions that we have for today’s beta program, and we start sending invites to the users who are okay with (1) $30,000 i…

How We Send the Invites

Due to the nature of this beta program, there are several restrictions including that the Alpaca Securities LLC brokerage (aka live-trading account on Alpaca) is available internationally on a limited basis for "non-solicited" customers* only.

* Any customer onboarding for live brokerage must electronically sign a Non-Solicitation Agreement certifying that the customer was not directly solicited to open a live brokerage account and must indicate how they became aware of Alpaca.

Although we are working to remove certain restrictions that we have with today’s beta program, we start sending invites to the users who are okay with (1) $30,000 initial funding, and (2) using international-wire transfer to deposit funds. (Pls note that this beta program does not support TransferWise or Revolut option, but supports an international-wire only. ACH does not work with a bank account outside the US.)

Additionally, there are certain jurisdictions that are easier for us to serve users in than others. Unfortunately, working with various jurisdictions has been more complicated than it seems, and we are going to take this into account when sending the invites out. We appreciate your patience and kind understanding that we, unfortunately, cannot be as transparent and straightforward as we want to be in terms of who are receiving the invites first.

How It Works

(1) In this invite-only beta program, we first ask you to fill out the form here.

(2) Once you are selected for an invite, we send a link for you to start a live-trading account opening process for a non-US resident. You should land on the screen like this.

(3) After your live-trading account is approved, please read the Wire Instruction carefully to use international-wire to deposit funds to your live-trading account, so that you can start trading. (Pls note that this beta program does not support TransferWise or Revolut option, but supports an international-wire only. ACH does not work with a bank account outside the US.)

Thank you for your continued support of Alpaca!
