The whole application and opening process for the blocked account takes around three working days. After opening the account, you will be able to transfer the required amount for your block confirmation and we will promptly issue your block confirmation. The blocked account is offered to persons from Non-EU-Countries except persons with US-Tax status. Who is treated as a ‘US-Person’ and why we are unfortunately not able to offer accounts for US-Persons can be found in the Help Section.
