In order to receive monthly payments from your Blocked Account, you can use any private bank account that is convenient for you. The only requirement is that the account must be created in your own name. You can not receive the Blocked Account disbursements to an accounts in the name of your relatives or friends.
If you have set up your Blocked Account as a part of Expatrio's Value Package, the activation of your Monese account is not mandatory. However, we recommend them as they provide a free contactless globally acceptable Mastercard, reduced rates on currency conversions, ability to pay with Apple Pay & Google Pay, customer support in 10 different languages and the special opportunity to get the Monese Classic Plan for free when applying through Expatrio (usually €4.95 per month).
