- Submit a request that you would like to upgrade the monthly amount from 720 to 853 Euro monthly.
- Before you submit your request to increase / top up your funds, please choose the category "Blocked Account Change Request".
- Once we receive your inquiry stating you need to increase your Blocked Account amount to 853€ per month, we will review your case and send you a follow-up email within two business days.
Additional important notes:
- Please do not transfer additional money to your existing blocked account without letting us know that you want to top up your blocked account. The total amount that you need to transfer will be specified in your follow-up email.
- If you require more than 853€ for your monthly amount, please also upload a letter from the German authority handling your visa request (embassy, consulate, Ausländerbehörde, etc.) which states the amount you need to block.
