BLOCKED ACCOUNT (SPERRKONTO only for Germany)
A bank account that does not allow the owner to withdraw more than a stipulated amount of money per month is called a Blocked account. A Blocked account is a mandatory requirement for students wishing to study in Germany. Here, students need to open a bank account with Deutsch Bank or Fintiba or Sutor or Kotak Mahindra Bank in India, where the standing instruction is that the student cannot withdraw more than €720 (or as suggested) per month.
It is a Federal state mandate that as part of your student visa application, you are required to provide proof of sufficient funds to cover your living expenses in Germany i.e., “Finanzierungsnachweis” – show proof of sufficient financial means. Candidates must be able to provide €8,640 (approx. ₹6.5 lakh) per annum, in a Blocked bank account, in Germany as proof of financial wellbeing for at least the first year of education.
It can take between one month to one week to open a Blocked account, depending upon the institution. Typically, Deutsche bank takes up to a month to open the account, while Kotak Mahindra Bank may take a week. Our experts at EduOptions Abroad will assist you and guide you to the right institution, and person, based on your specific requirements, to ensure no time is wasted while opening a Blocked account.
Once the account is opened, the bank will send a confirmation mail with the details to the German Embassy/Consulate. This is essential for the student to get a German National Visa.
