Monese + Expatrio
Get your Monese account
You’ve chosen Expatrio for your journey to Germany. Now you need a current bank account. It’s time to sign up for your Monese account.
How to open a Monese account before arriving in Germany
1. Download the app
Type in your mobile number or tap on the download button above to get your link to get the Monese app on your iOS or Android phone.
2. Sign up from your phone
Make sure you type “XPSTUD19” into the invite code field. You'll then be taken through a few identity checks, so please have your ID at hand.
3. Wait until you're in Germany
Once you've passed the identity checks, your account will be ready but frozen. You won't be able to use it until you arrive in Germany.
4. Activate your account
Once you arrive in Germany, simply send your visa document and passport entry stamp to firstname.lastname@example.org to unfreeze and start using your Monese account (and to receive your card).
Automatic monthly disbursement
Your Monese account will be automatically linked to your Expatrio blocked account, so you can begin to receive your monthly disbursement straight away.
