Opening a bank account in Germany
The Embassy is not able to carry out identity checks in connection with bank account openings or taking out a loan. Please contact your bank for further information. Exempt from this new ruling are blocked accounts for foreign students who must apply for a student visa before entering Germany and who need to open an account in Germany in order to prove sufficient financial means for their stay in Germany. In these cases only, the German missions abroad are allowed to notarize signatures or to perform identity verification.
