DISCLAIMER: Please contact Deutsche bank, Hamburg, Germany directly for any query. Any information from DB is final and binding

What is Blocked Account (Sperrkonto) 

A Blocked Account (Sperrkonto) is required if you are planning on financing your studies yourself.

You will have to deposit a minimum of EURO 8040,- in a blocked account in a bank in Germany and you can only withdraw a maximum of EURO 670,- per month. (Check the exact amount from Embassy)
You must make this change in the account opening form to ensure that you don't face problem later on.

This has to be opened when you are in India. Although it is not mandatory by all embassies. Some embassies allow you to take a Foreign DD of worth this amount with you and deposit this amount in Germany when you are there. Consult with your embassy.

Is this money sufficient for entire duration of study?

No!! On time of arrival (in addition to rental, registration and living costs) you also need to pay tuition fees and semester contribution to enrol at the University. (This note is valid for those students who haven't got an exemption from tuition fees).

The costs are ca. 700 € and therewith higher than your monthly limit of withdrawal. Corresponding to this blocked account you may not be able to pay these semester fees. So please remember to bring enough money in addition to be able to pay for these costs. Or cover your account with a higher amount corresponding to the requested additional fees.

Also please remember that you will have to pay these additional costs every new semester and therefore need to have enough money on your account.

When should I apply for Blocked account?

As soon as you are taking appointment for Student Visa with German consulate or even before that. Because Blocked account is prerequisite to appear for Visa.

Do I need a confirmed admission to apply for Blocked account?

No. It is not required. Blocked account can be opened before getting admission letter.

Testimonial

I had contacted Germanymantra with a query regarding blocked account on 18th May. I am very happy to tell you that the response and follow up to my mail was very fast and effective. Mr. Sagar Bathla, Relationship Manager at Deutsche Bank AG called me up and took up my case in very little time. He helped me at every stage and cleared all my doubts. I was very surprised that I received my blocked account number within 7 days of submitting the application forms. I am very grateful for your response to my mail.

Hello Sir,

I would like to express my appreciation for the remarkable services rendered by Mr. Sagar Bhatla in opening my blocked account as well as Indian account at Deutsche Bank as per his commitment date.

Ever since i got his contact from germanymantra he has been ready to help 24/7. The time taken for response is very quick. Even at odd times he was always ready yot help. He has not only helped me with the account creation but has also helped me with all my other banking queries throughout the process and made it look smooth. If not for Mr Sagar i would have never opened an Indian account at Deutsche Bank India. He clearly explained me the advantages I would have with the account. He did that with a lot of patience. I'm particularly impressed with his honesty, sincerity, calmness and guidance throughout the process.

I'm so grateful to GermanyMantra for assigning Mr. Sagar as my banking representative.

Also I am totally impressed by the services at offer for Deutsche Bank India Customers. I would suggest more & more prospective students wishing to study abroad to seek & avail the services of Deutsche Bank India.

Looking forward to banking with Deutsche Bank.
