In case your passport is with the embassy when you are prompted to upload a picture of you holding your passport next to your face (meaning that you are not able to take a selfie with it), you can, alternatively, also upload a selfie of you with your ID-Card and the receipt of the embassy in your hands instead of the selfie with the passport.
Note: This only works with the manual verification process - not for the video legitimation or photo identification at our service partner [verify-U]. Furthermore, it is crucial that everything on the documents is well readable, so that the verification can be processed without any issues. Documents that are not readable and therefore not possible to be verified can result in significant delays in your blocked account opening process.
Due to very strict laws and regulations, be kindly advised that a copy of your passport is mandatory for the blocked account opening. Should you not be able to provide the copy of your passport, the blocked account opening will not be possible.
