HOW TO GET AN ACEPTABLE BANK STATEMENT OF ACCOUNT FOR VISA APPLICATION
One of the well known requirements that can greatly affect your Visa application process is your bank account statement.
In this aspect, you have a lot of experts who preach all sort of practices which I would love to describe as black hat practices because it doesn’t denote trust.
The best way to cross this process is by sticking completely with the policy of the embassies and best international practices.
So today, I am going to list out to you some of the most important things that workers at the embassy get to check out for before accepting to approve your visa application.
First of all, you should know that there is a big difference between a bank statement of account and a bank account. This is a question I get to answer every time.
To get you your bank statement of account, you should go to the bank you use most often as that could be your best shot and then go to the customer care department and request for a statement of account.
The cost is quite low and it mainly depends on the number of pages the transactions can occupy.
So now, here are some tips that you can use to self examine yourself.
YOU CANNOT FURGE A BANK STATEMENT OF ACCOUNT
Many people have derive the creative crime of forging documents but this can never be done when dealing with an embassy.
This is because for every statement of account submitted to the embassy, they will send a request of verification to your bank.
If the bank rejects the statement, you may have trouble forever travelling to that country because your image has already being tarnished. So it is highly and morally advisable to stick to the truth and submit the authentic bank statement of account giving to you by the bank.
YOUR BANK ACCOUNT STATEMENT SHOULD SHOW A STEADY FLOW OF INCOME
This now well know as these countries would not like you to cross into their borders legitimately and become a liability.
Now it is also very important to know that there is a big difference between an attractive account balance and a steady flow of income. Such could be seen as a monthly or weekly salary that has being running for at least 18 months for maximum effect and seems not to stop in the next two years.
Also, if you are not a salary earner, you may want to consider using your business account with n=an explanation to the consulate.
USING A SPONSORS ACCOUNT
In the case when your bank account does look attractive enough, you are also allowed to use an account of a sponsor (in such cases the person serves as the one sponsoring your trip and liabilities).
However, the person must either have a family relationship or employer’s relationship wit you.
For instance, you husband can choose to sponsor your trip and all you will need is a valid marriage certificate. Also your employer can decide to send you on a training trip or vacation.
