How Nonresidents can Obtain an IRS ITIN from Abroad
If you are a nonresident who needs to file a US nonresident tax return or you have a spouse who is a nonresident and wish to make the election to file a joint return with them (it can often reduce your US income taxes) you need to get an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) because they are not eligible to get a social security number. You must have this number to file a tax return, and many banks and others require it before you an open a US bank or financial account.
