As an international student or expat who has recently moved to Germany, you are likely already aware of the visa requirement for a blocked account. This account is proof that you have enough financial resources for your stay in the country.

But what happens if you want to stay longer than you originally planned? You'll need to get a residency permit extension, or in German -  'Verlängerung eines Aufenthaltstitels'.

Don’t worry, Expatrio is here to help.

Expatrio Blocked Account

Want a fast, easy, and secure Blocked Account? Open yours online while still in your home country.

Open your Blocked Account

Not only do we offer blocked account extensions for existing Expatrio customers but we also work with non-existing customers too! Meaning you can have a blocked account with another provider, and switch to Expatrio to extend. Advantages include cashback of up to €109* on your blocked account fees, and we'll help make your visa extension process as easy as possible.

For even more perks, refer your friends to extend their blocked accounts with Expatrio and get rewards for doing so! 

So what are the top reasons to switch from your current provider and extend with Expatrio? 

1. Completely online setup 

 Expatrio allows you to extend your blocked account completely online. No hassle or stress caused by in-person appointments. This level of convenience is a life-saver, especially when you are busy with studies or your job. By using our online platform, you can easily complete all the necessary procedures to extend your blocked account and avoid unnecessary delays.

2. Save more money! 

Expatrio offers competitive pricing and advantages. Move to Expatrio and get up to €109* cashback with your free blocked account! We also include other perks in our Value Package such as a free International Student Identity Card (ISIC). What would you do with €109 back in your pocket? 

Want to increase your savings even more? Refer your friends!

Do you know someone beginning their relocation to Germany? Send them to Expatrio for all their blocked account and health insurance needs. Or maybe you know someone who needs to extend their current blocked account and move from their existing provider.

With your unique referral code, you can receive €10 for every friend that activates with us. 

3. Feel secure with multilingual customer support

We understand that relocating to a new country can be a daunting experience. At Expatrio we do everything we can to make it easier for you.
