A Bank Account
in Germany is important especially for Non-EU Citizens. With a German bank account, you can withdraw money free of charge from cash machines in Germany, make payments electronically, and set up “standing orders” for regular payments – like rent, health insurance or telephone bills. If you get a scholarship from HfG, you will need a current account to receive your pay. There are numerous commercial and savings banks which operate branches in cities throughout Germany. There are also a number of online banks which offer the entire range of services via the Internet. When opening a bank account you should make sure that the bank is a national or direct bank. To open an account, you are normally asked to present the following documents:
Passport or personal identification card,
Student ID or certificate of enrolment of the German university
