How does the legitimation process work?

Fintiba offers a quick and simple process of identity-check that allows international students to set-up their payouts right after their arrival in Germany. For that, you simply need to have your passport available when opening your Blocked Account in the Fintiba app and make sure to provide your visa at a later stage in accordance with the requirements:

Due to certain German regulations, individuals from countries that are classified as high-risk for money-laundering*, as well as those with a blocked amount exceeding  € 15.000 are required to complete an additional legitimation step. If that is the case, different alternatives will automatically become available in your profile depending on your nationality and passport.

There is nothing to be worried about as we will be by your side to guide you through the process step by step.
