Can I apply for a U.S. mortgage if I don't live in the U.S.?

Yes, you can apply for a U.S. mortgage with East West Bank even if you don’t live in the U.S. and are not a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident. Unlike some U.S. lenders, a Social Security Number or U.S. credit history is not a requirement for applicants to qualify for our Bridge to Home loan program.

To learn more about our mortgage loan programs, please visit the East West Bank mortgage website.

To apply for a mortgage online, please visit the online mortgage application homepage.

Note: The mortgage application is not currently available via mobile devices. We recommend using Google Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers when viewing the above site.

If you have questions, you can contact English, Mandarin, Cantonese and Spanish speaking loan specialists.
