When I moved here from Ireland I used my Irish driver's license. If you have seen one of those it looks like it was printed at home on an inkjet printer. It does have a photo but it is easily removed and replaced etc. They had no issue with me using it and my passport.

Try another bank, though you will almost certainly need a SS#. My wife was able to open an account with US Bank with her SS# and passport.

I rolled into a branch of Citizens Bank in Massachusetts with my passport and rolled out around 20 minutes later; checking account opened.

As I'm classed as a non-resident alien, the bank had to print off a Patriot Act Waiver for me to sign. This appears to circumvent the usual requirements for SSNs etc and, like I say, all I needed was my UK passport. I did have to confirm my then girlfriend's address and that was done by him making a quick call to check the details.

It was the first time the guy had opened an account for a non-resident and it was very quick and easy.

That's strange, why would they need your foreign driver's license, if you have your passport. I'm sure passport should be enough for ID. Maybe, the guy just didn't know what he was doing. I opened an account at BOA with only my passport, maybe you should just try another location. You could try Wells Fargo bank-it is good also.

update:

just to let everyone know i got my first american bank account today with Bank of America, all i needed was 25 dollars or more, my i-94 and my passport, 1 form of id like a bank card/credit card. it helped that they had alot of foreign students so they were used to opening such accounts. if you have your social security number it will be put in your american address but if not they will use your old address from your country of origin. simples!!!

they even give you a temporary bank debit card ( which i have never seen b4 in me life!) sooooo cool.
