Looking for a Deutsche Bank Blocked Account?

Deutsche Bank has stopped opening Blocked Accounts, but Fintiba is still here for you!

Welcome to Fintiba – the only fully digital blocked account at a German bank

For many years, Deutsche Bank was the only blocked account provider for internationals coming to Germany. With the launch of our online blocked account solution in 2017, Fintiba was the first company to digitise and thus revolutionise this previously manual and time-consuming process.

After five years of fair competition in helping international students prove their financial means for the German visa application, Deutsche Bank has discontinued its blocked account service as of July 2022. This makes Fintiba the only provider opening blocked accounts directly at a German bank.
