Last year (2019) I(non-european) did an exchange in Aachen, Germany (for 1 year) and had to open a bank account in Germany. I left it open on purpose when I left (around October) because I had an internship lined up. (The internship was in Belgium, so I had to go back due to a couple of visa issues - aka I had to get a Belgian student permit but could only do this in my country). A lot of problems happened and I was not able to go back.
Now my questions:
- I work as freelancer and sometimes I receive payments in Euro. Can I keep this account at least as a savings account? (My country's currency is messed up.)
- If not how could I close this account?
- Bonus: how can I check if I owe something to Rundfunk (not sure if I paid everything correctly)? I have sent them a couple of emails and no reply :(
