Frequently asked questions

A blocked account is basically a proof of payment that shows you will be able to support your own living expenses while in Germany. The money is ‚Äėblocked‚Äô until you have arrived in Germany. To release the funds, all you have to do is show a proof of address and or enrolment. They will then be deposited monthly into your own German bank account that is accessible for your living expenses.¬†

Expatrio is the first digital end-to-end relocation platform for students, expatriates and anyone moving to Germany. By combining a unique individual assessment with possible direct contract conclusion for all necessary products and services, the platform eliminates the prevalent pain throughout the relocation value chain. Expatrio together with ECO-Escrow developed an unprecedented way of opening and running a Blocked Account that is officially approved by the German Federal Foreign Office.
