After filling in the bank details in the student area, how many days does it take for the amount to appear in the account?

Within 72 business hours after correctly filling in the details on the student portal, the balance will be in your account.

I have already purchased the euros, but the balance is zero, what should I do?

If you have recently entered your bank details into the student portal, you must wait up to 72 working hours. If this deadline has passed and you have already completed the data entry process, you must inform the team on the student portal about the error.
