What is a Sperrfreigabe and why is it mandatory for releasing funds?

Maeen Updated by Maeen

A Sperrfreigabe is a confirmation letter from the embassy stating that they have no objections to the release of the funds.

As per German law, we are not able to release funds without this confirmation letter. 

How did we do?

What steps do I take if my visa is rejected?

It has been more than 30 days since I requested my refund and I have not received it. What should I do?
