The "additional basic sum" is an additional amount on your blocked account which only needs to be entered if your local embassy, consulate or alien authority inquires a special request! Please do not enter any "additional basic sum" without the particular request by the embassy. If you have to enter an "additional basic sum" it is just a security for the aforementioned entities. Please keep in mind that this sum remains blocked during your time in Germany.
