Option 1. You can find a bank that will open an account online like Bank of America or Wells Fargo. They sometimes give you an option of opening a “Wyoming” bank account.
Option 2. Some banks allow you to open a Wyoming business bank account if they have a local branch near you. Have the Wyoming branch send your local branch the paperwork to sign for a Wyoming bank account.
Option 3. A third option is using an online brokerage account like ameritrade or etrade. This is an option for few.
Option 4. Go with an independent online bank. It is not clear if you can open a Wyoming account, but an online account is certainly obtainable. https://www.smallbusinessbank.com/
