There is no legal obstacle to the opening as a foreign national of a UK bank account, but each bank has its own products that come with specific terms and conditions. Your birthplace, rather than your citizenship, is typically what matters most. That means you can always open an account, regardless of your nationality, if you live in the UK.
To open a UK bank account you will need documentation to prove your identity as well as your address. This is one of the ways banks maintain security and make sure accounts are not being used for illegal activity.
