    I want to study in April 2018 and will need to open a blocked account in October 2017. But I was born in February 2000. So I will still have 17 years by that time. Please what can I do?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, people under the age of 18 can not open a blocked account via Fintiba at Sutor bank even not with the permission of their parents.

    I am from Kyrgyzstan but received my Bachelor degree in the US about 6 years ago. I used to work part-time at the university, so was a taxpayer. However, I have been back in my country ever since my graduation and am no longer a taxpayer in the US. Am I still not eligible for a blocked account?

    Unfortunately people who are under 18 years old, can not open a blocked account via Fintiba at Sutor bank. As soon as you turn 18 you can open the account.

    Hi,

    I want to create a Blocked account but I don't have a local German bank account. Is it necessary to have a an Account in a German bank? My father will be transferring money from Indian bank to the Blocked account once it is created. Is that accepted?  Because I hardly have a month to apply for Visa.

    You can open the blocked account even without a local German bank account. You just need to open this bank account as soon as your are in Germany so that they monthly payout can be made from your blocked account at Sutor bank to your current account at another German bank of your choice.

    Even relatives or friends can transfer the money to your blocked account. Only cash debits are not allowed due to banking regulations.

    When your nationality is Iranian but you are not living in the Iran you can open a blocked account via Fintiba at  Sutor bank. Therefore please provide a document like a visa/ residence permit or registration from the country where you are staying at support@fintiba.com.

    You can open the blocked account even from Germany and you can also fill in your German address. Please note that nothing will be send via postal service to this address as the whole process is done online. The money can also be send from your home country that's not a problem.

    Hello
    I will be 18 by this 01.05.2000, and planned to study in Germany in July, can I at least start opening a blocked account about week or a few days before I reach 18 so that when the blocked account is finished I will 18 by the time its done, or do I have to "wait" until I am 18 to start fill in the document stuffs.
    Thank you

    Hello Warot,

     

    Even to start the process you have to be 18 years old. As soon as you turn 18 you can start the opening process. :-)

    Dear Runqi,

     

    During the account opening process, you will be prompted to answer a few questions related about your tax status, more information about this issue can be founded in the question itself, so you just need to simply check it and mark "yes" or "no" depending on your case. :-)

    Hi, I worked in the USA as a J1 in a Work and Travel program in 2016-2017 and when I was there I paid taxes, but I was considered a Nonresident alien. So, Im confused about my US Tax Status. How can I know if I can apply for the block account opening?

    Thank you
