If Students wants to transfer money to Canada, Germany and New Zealand, you must know about GIC Payment, Blocked account payment and FTS Payment.


What is GIC Payment?

GIC is essentially a fixed deposit in the identity of a student who travels to Canada for educational purposes. Through this method, the Canadian government guarantees that individuals who want to study at Canadian Colleges have enough money to cover their course expenditures.

According to CIC (Citizen Immigration Canada) rules, GIC refers to a "Guaranteed Investment Certificate". It is a short-term investment issued by Canadian banks for up to a year. Students seeking admission under the SPP (Student Partner Program) Visa for studies in Colleges in Canada are obliged to invest 10,000 Canadian Dollars in the mode of a GIC with any Canadian Bank.

The Canada GIC process is a compulsory requirement for all international students who wish to study in Canada. GIC is an investment scheme mostly preferred for International students to study in Canada for study programs. All international students are required to deposit their one year’s living expenses into a Canada based bank in order to qualify for a student visa to study in Canada.

Students can choose Orient Exchange to create GIC Account and transfer money from India to Canada.


What is Blocked Account Payment?

Blocked Accounts are essentially a solution for students to demonstrate to the German government that they have the financial resources to maintain themselves for a set period. Therefore, a Blocked Account is frequently a visa necessity. However, a Blocked Account cannot be said to be the same as a standard current banking account that we are all familiar with.

The critical distinction is that when you register a Blocked Account, you are allowed to withdraw a fixed sum every month to cover your living expenses. The amount can be withdrawn by opening a separate saving account from a bank in Germany of your choice, and then you can provide the details of the saving account to the bank where you’ve opened a Blocked Account.

Students can transfer money online from India to Germany by opening a Blocked Account in Germany, Orient Exchange will help in creating Blocked account and transferring money from India to any European countries.


What is FTS Payment?

The ANZ Bank of New Zealand Limited [ANZ] offers a Fund Transfer Scheme [FTS] that allows students to transfer money from banks and financial institutions overseas to an ANZ bank account in New Zealand.

These funds are released periodically to support students while they are in New Zealand. Students who will be studying in New Zealand for a year or more can use FTS to show us they meet the minimum funds requirement for a student visa. Most New Zealand student visas require you to have NZ$15,000 in addition to your course fee for each year you’ll be studying in New Zealand.

All International students are required to deposit NZ$15000 in addition to the course fee for their one year’s living expenses in order to qualify for a student visa in New Zealand.

Indian Students can transfer money to New Zealand from India by creating FTS account and can process FTS payment through us.
