Deposits from German and Austrian banks

Deposits from or routed through Germany and Austrian banks are currently considered high risk due to fraudulent activities in the past. As a security precaution, withdrawals in all currencies of up to 125% of the volume of the first EUR deposit into your Kraken account are locked for 72 hours.

This means that if your first EUR deposit was €1,000, you won't be able to withdraw the equivalent of €1,250 for the following 72 hours. After the 72 hours, future EUR deposits will not trigger this lock.

If any subsequent EUR deposits arrive in the first 72 hours, the timer will reset and the withdrawal locked will be based on the total amount of the deposits.

Please note that trading on your account will remain accessible throughout the period of the withdrawal lock.
