Many European Countries will NOT open an account for ANYONE with a US Passport...........
Indeed.
One of the few disadvantages of being a US Passport holder. We've become to controlling with all of our regulations.

The funny thing is that I am Dominican and because I have US citizenship they treated me the same way if I was a national American. I try to open a bank account in 2019 and I was denied because I live in the US and didn't have with me all requirements, employment verification letter, W2, two years income tax etc...

Crazy 😧

Not crazy....US residents are equal to citizens in all ways except the vote

I had a Green Card and turned it in for that reason..........

US citizens might have to jump thru even more hoops to open a bank acct in the Dominican Republic if the US defaults on its debt limit that’s currently in negotiations. The US credit rating would drop, etc
