You can open a BAnk account even with a passport, some Banks employees do not know this but under the law they should let you.  A friend open 5 BAnk accounts here with a passport 6 months ago, you could start with the private Banks first like  BAC & Scottia Bank.

As an individual non-resident, you can open an account at Banco Nacional with your passport and two local references (e.g., school administrator, landlord).
