- Opening of the account
Upon registering for your blocked account on our website you will get access to an online platform where you can easily manage the details of your account opening. After entering your personal details and verifying your identity, your blocked account is opened and the blocked amount can be transferred to your account. Immediately after the blocking sum has arrived, your blocking confirmation will be issued and you can download it from your Fintiba account. With this document it is now possible to apply for your national visa for Germany.
- Unblocking of the account
After your arrival in Germany, a regular account at a local bank (e.g. Deutsche Bank, Sparkasse, Postbank etc.) needs to be opened so that we can transfer your monthly sum from your blocked account to your current account regularly. Help and advice on where you can open this kind of account can be found in the ‘Current Account’ section of the Fintiba WebApp.
Depending on your passport and nationality you might have to complete an additional step which is the final legitimation in Germany. More information whether you need to complete it or not and how this works can be found here.
