German Blocked Account for International Students - ReYep
Required documents: blocked account application forms (available on the consulate website), current passport, your birth certificate, your acceptance certificate from the school. Although deutsche bank looks more professional, the process takes too long and the visa may be late. Actually, this account can be opened from any bank. Call the branches of the banks in your own country in Germany, most of them have branches in Germany, you may have a chance to call and speak in your own language. Call me, but you can easily get your money from the ATM with a debit card from the bank in Germany (with a few clicks). My advice is don't go to Germany with a debit card from your home country. I do not know how many years you will read this article, but money transfer between countries is always a problem. I would say never try to withdraw the money in your bank account in your own country from Germany.
