Do you need to file an FBAR?
Anyone who must file or pay US taxes from abroad is required to file the FBAR once the total value of all foreign financial accounts exceeded $10,000 at any time during the calendar year reported.

FBAR 101 - Frequently asked questions
Learn about the Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts Report
If the aggregate of your foreign bank and financial accounts exceeds $10 000 even for one day, you have to file the FBAR.
The deadline for filing the FBAR is October 15. For example, you can file your 2022 FBAR until October 15, 2023.
By filing the FBAR, you are informing the Treasury Department about your foreign accounts, this way you are helping them in preventing tax evasion.
Since FBARS are filed through FinCen and not the IRS, penalties can be as high as $10,000 a year for filing errors or not knowing you had to file.
Fortunately, there is an amnesty option for expats to make up this tax situation. However, you’ll need to use them before the IRS contacts you. The amnesty program is called the Delinquent FBAR Submission Procedures.
The fee (49€ / 54$) is per year of FBAR filing, regardless how many accounts you have to report for any given year!
If you file and pay for your FBAR only at first, but later want to upgrade to file for a tax return in the same calendar, the FBAR payment will be credited towards the tax return fee!
