Applying for a Visa (only relevant for Non-EU Students)

If you wish to study in Germany, it is essential that you obtain a residence permit that allows you to live in Germany for a certain amount of time. If you are an EU citizen, you do not need a visa or a residence permit. However, many international students from outside the EU need a valid visa to enter the country; this can then be converted into a residence permit at a later stage. For more information on the visa for study purposes please CLICK HERE.

Blocked Account

You may need to open a blocked account to secure your German visa.

If you are moving to Germany for university studies or preparatory courses (Studienkolleg), a Blocked Account allows you to prove sufficient financial resources during your stay in Germany.

What is a Blocked Account (Sperrkonto) in Germany?

The Blocked Account (Sperrkonto) is a special type of bank account required by German law for many internationals to secure their German visa.

The solution that Hochschule Fresenius offers:

Our international students use EXPATRIO, CORACLE and FINTIBA. All three platforms can be highly recommended. Simply choose your preferred provider!

All three platforms enable you to open a state-recognized German blocked account and receive a health insurance for the German visa application. You can secure everything online. Easy and simple solutions for you!
