Transferring in one transaction
The fastest way for you to receive your '06 Blocked Amount Confirmation' is to transfer the Total Blocked Amount in one transfer. As we have automated processes working in the background, you will immediately receive your '06 Blocked Amount Confirmation' document once the Total Blocked Amount has been credited to your blocked account.
Transferring in several transactions
If for any reason you are not able to transfer the fund within one transaction, you are also able to transfer the amount in multiple installments. Please be aware that we will not be able to issue your '06 Blocked Amount Confirmation' document before we have received the full amount. This is to ensure that you do not encounter any difficulties while using your Blocked Account to apply for a German Visa.
Someone else sends the funds ("3rd party transfer")
In case your friends or family members will support you and transfer the required amount for you, this is not a problem at all. As long as you make sure that they will send the funds to your name and to the correct German IBAN of your Blocked Account, the money will be credited to your Blocked Account. Should you use the domestic transfer or the USD transfer option, please indicate who will send the funds throughout the payment initiation process.
Transferring more money than required
You should not transfer more money than required. The Total Blocked Amount already includes all fees as well as a buffer to be on the safe side in case of e.g. unforeseeable bank transfer fees.
