Opening a Blocked Account

21.08.2018 - Article
Dear Students,
please note that the necessary amount for the block account deposit has been raised! From 1st September 2019 (date of submission of the application) all applicants must provide the total sum of 10,236/- Euro in their block account (853/- Euro per month).

When applying for visa, you can provide evidence that you are able to meet your living costs by opening a blocked bank account. You have free choice of provider. To the best of the Embassy’s knowledge, the following banks offer blocked accounts in Bangladesh that meet the requirements of the visa procedure. Information on providers that offer this service worldwide is available on the Federal Foreign Office website.

Please note that incomplete or incorrect applications will result in processing delays. This checklist is designed to help you to open a blocked account. We recommend to open the account in due time as proof of adequate financing is a prerequisite for the students’ visa application.

To the best of the Embassy’s  knowledge, the following providers currently offer blocked accounts throughout Germany (listed in alphabetical order):
