What is Fintiba Plus and what are the advantages compared to Fintiba Basic?

To issue your visa, the German government requires you to submit proof of:

  • The financial means for your stay in Germany. Depositing the required sum of money in a Blocked Account is typically the most popular option.
  • Health insurances for your well being. Having a travel insurance and a health insurance takes care of this. 

While Finitba Basic helps you quickly open and deposit money into your Blocked Account, Fintiba Plus not only helps you with your Blocked Account, but also obtain both the insurances required by the German government - the travel insurance and the health insurance.

To put simply, Fintiba Plus = Fintiba Basic + Travel Insurance + Health Insurance 

Fintiba Plus is therefore a special package designed to minimise your bureaucratic load for arranging all the requirements to prove your financial means and well being, and focus on the essentials: to enjoy your stay in Germany!
