German Bank Account

Open a German Bank Account – The requirements to open a bank account in Germany are the same for most banks:

  • A proof of German residency (your Meldebescheinigung). Some banks let you open an account without one.
  • A proof of identity (your passport)

Some banks also require a minimum income or some financial history in Germany, and will sometimes refuse business to foreigners and candidates with bad credit.
