    Hi, is it possible to delay the payment after account opening. If yes, for how long? I mean, how long does it take to an account be automatically closed because of money transfer missing?

    You can transfer the money whenever you are ready/ when it is needed for the visa application. Nevertheless we will not close any accounts without the permission of the owner.

    I am asking because I am not sure if the time between receiving confirmation letter and immatrikulation deadline will be enough to get a visa. In case I won`t have enough time I would rather just close my account. Is it possible? 
    Thank you in advance!

    Hello, can you help me ? I'm a student from Russia and I'm going to study at Germany for about 7 month. So, I opened my blocked account at Fintiba to get visa, but the sum of money at the blocked account is quite higher, that I expected. It's 8839€, but this sum is necessary if you are going to study a full year. The sum is necessary for me for 7 month is 5040€, because I'm going to be at Germany from 1.09.2017 to 31.03.2018. So, can I change the sum of money in my application for opening blocked account at Fintiba?

    Hi! If my language course in Germany is for 4 months, do I deposit 2880 Euros (7200 x 4 ) right away? Does this EXCLUDE this initial fee of  89.00 euros? Thank you in advance.

    The exact amount that needs to be transferred is mentioned on the 'Information about your Blocked Amount Transfer' document where also your account details (IBAN and BIC) are mentioned.

    I already have an approved university student visa, but I plan traveling with my wife, and the embassy asked my wife (family reunion visa) to open a blocked account with EUR 16.080. We will be staying for 24 months in Germany, since that is the length of my studies.

    1) Could she open the account or should I be the one to open it (I understand it is only for students)?

    2) Since she needs an amount of 16.080 EUR blocked, should we state in the form that it will be 670EUR for 24 months (the page tells the maximum is 12mo, and if we put 1340EUR/month we get a response saying it is too much money per month)?

    Hi Hayat,

    you will always select your most current status, which in your situation would be "language student" as your visa would be issued for the purpose of coming to Germany as a language student. From our experience this will not impose any issues with your time at the university.

    Best regards!

    When you don't have the requested details for the address just fill in zero ('0') for the house number and for the city you can just fill in the city name. Please don't worry regarding the address as nothing will be send to this address. This is just for the completion of your personal data.

    When the duration of your stay is over and there is no money left, the account will automatically be closed.

    The account can only be opened for one year. Every additional year costs 89€ and then you need to add the monthly fee of 4,90€ that will be charged from the month onward when the money has arrived on the account.
