Make sure you type “XPSTUD19” into the invite code field. You'll then be taken through a few identity checks, so please have your ID at hand.
Wait until you're in Germany
Once you've passed the identity checks, your account will be ready but frozen. You won't be able to use it until you arrive in Germany.
4. Activate your account
Once you arrive in Germany, simply send your visa document and passport entry stamp to email@example.com to unfreeze and start using your Monese account (and to receive your card).
