  1. Hallo!, thank you for your help with this entry. I have already traveled to Germany and I find your “Checklist” very useful. However I have one question.

    How was your experience with the blocked account in the ProCredit bank?, do you know if the Ausländeramt of München accepts the blocked accounts from this bank?. My main concern is that almost every embassy recommends to open the account in the Deutsche-Bank and at the end, some of them add: “or any other bank in Germany, such as Commerzbank etc”, but the procedures are easier with ProCredit Bank and that makes this option more interesting. I really appreciate any help.

    1. Hey,
      We are so sorry for the late reply!

      We opened the account in Procredit Bank temporarily in our country and then after we came to Germany, we opened a bank account at Deutsche Bank and made a money transfer. The whole process takes around one month.
      It should be any bank, we are not sure about it though. Many of our friends use Sparkasse Bank, so this is also a possibility.
      Still the suggestions have a reason 😛

      P.S. We are really glad to help. Feel free to ask any question.
      P.P.S Best of luck 😀
