Experiences from our community

Our research shows that Commerzbank wants to see your residence permit as a non-EU citizen. However, we know for a fact that a Brazilian in Düsseldorf, a US-American near Stuttgart, and an Indian in Berlin didn’t need their residence permit. So you might want to try your luck.

On two occasions, Iranian and Russian community members informed us that they were not accepted by Commerzbank.
