You don’t need to have German citizenship to open a Kontist account, but you do need to have a German address. For verification via video you need a valid ID or passport of your home country. We do not accept a driver’s licence or residence permit.
We’re subject to the guidelines of BaFin for video verification, which will be conducted by IDnow. Read here which documents we accept:
If your country is listed as not BaFin-compliant or not listed at all, you can’t open a Kontist account.
