All data was transmitted electronically to the bank. In the next few hours/days, the staff – supported by computer systems – will check the application and inform you via e-mail.
Submitting documents, such as payslips, is not necessary in most cases. Similarly, the account application does not have to be printed and sent with your signature to the bank. The account opening request is valid without a signature. You have confirmed your intentions by clicking on the button. The opening of the DKB account is possible paperless.
The e-mail of the DKB includes the prompt for legitimating (ID check) and proposes one or more options depending on your place of residence. The common methods are the PostIdent or via WebCam. If you live outside Germany, the identification form (via bank, notary, lawyer) is still partially accepted.
