Blocked Account

A blocked account is needed to deposit the money required to prove financial ability for studying in Germany. You have to create this account whilst applying for a student visa in Germany. The amount in the blocked account is used to manage accommodation, living expenses, and traveling costs. Deutsche Bank, Kotak Mahindra & other banks also provide the blocked account facility, but it can take up to 6 to 10 days for the same.

We advise Fintiba for blocked account facility. It is only a 2 day process via them. They also provide Travel and Health Insurance coverage.

A cover letter is a letter required for the German Student Visa application. It explains the exact purpose of the stay in the country. Through this letter, the authorities evaluate your intentions to enter the country and verify your credentials.
