Here’s what happy students are saying
Fintiba’s service was a real lifesaver for me! I got my admission very late and therefore had very little time to open a blocked account. But with Fintiba Transfer I was able to send the money to Germany within one day and my blocking confirmation was issued immediately. I recommend Fintiba to everyone outside, looking to open a blocked account in a trustworthy and reliable organisation!
Great rates, no additional transfer costs, and efficient transfer times! Very Recommended.

We can offer our services to international students, language students, au-pairs, interns or apprentices.
☝ Please note: Due to regulatory restrictions we cannot offer our Fintiba Transfer services to applicants for job-seeker visas/residence permit applicants.
No. The use of Fintiba Transfer is free of charge, meaning that you don’t have to pay any additional fees for using the service. On top of that, you can pay in your money in your local currency and enjoy great exchange rates.
Compared to an international bank transfer, you do not need to include an additional buffer deposit of € 100.00, as this is no longer required. Our transfer partners guarantee that the full amount will be credited to your account and that your blocking confirmation can be issued immediately.
So in summary, you can say that with Fintiba Transfer, you are choosing speed, comfort and simplicity without any additional effort.
For more information on the individual amounts, you will also find your transfer information document in the Documents section once the account is opened.
In most cases, it is possible to pay with a credit card. Once you start the Fintiba Transfer process, you can see the cost and availability of each transfer method and you can select the option that you prefer.
☝ Please note: As the money has to arrive in the blocked account in euros, we will make sure that with Fintiba Transfer you have the best possible exchange rates from your local currency. The exchange rate you see when initiating the transaction is saved for you for 48 hours, giving you enough time to send the necessary amount.
It is now possible to get your blocking confirmation instantly after you send the full blocked amount with a credit card transfer in one transaction via Fintiba Transfer.
☝ Please note, this is only possible if you see the option for a credit card transfer for your country in TransferMate.
As soon as you complete the process in TransferMate, the blocking confirmation will be issued in your Documents section and can be used for your visa appointment. A real time-saver for those last-minute appointments!
☝ Please note: The refund via Fintiba Transfer is only possible if you have originally sent the money to your Fintiba account via Fintiba Transfer.
Refunds to bank accounts outside Germany can take up to 3-4 weeks because often intermediary banks are involved in the payment chain. Read more about the process in our dedicated blog article on international transfers. In addition, these cross-border payments can incur expensive currency exchange rates and extra commissions, as banks usually have additional fees for international transfers.
In case you do not come to Germany, due to a visa rejection or have to leave the country earlier than expected, you can benefit from a faster, cheaper and more convenient refund process if you use Fintiba Transfer.
You can close your account directly in the Fintiba app. You can read more about this process here. After you have completed these steps, our Customer Care Team will review your closure application with all the documents provided and help you close the account.
Once you receive a confirmation that the account has been closed, you will receive your refund faster than with a regular international bank transfer. In your Fintiba account, you will always be informed about the current status of your money.
TransferMate allows you to make international payments to Fintiba free of charge where TransferMate has a localised account, without paying international bank charges while receiving competitive exchange rates.

- Pay in your own currency
- A more streamlined payment process
