Is bank statement important?
Yes, bank statement is a very important part of your visit visa application.
How the information on my bank statement will be used?
A visa officer will check following things in your bank statement
- Monthly Deposits – How much money is getting deposited each month.
- Monthly Withdrawals – How much money you are withdrawing each month.
- What is the ending balance on your statement.
- The transactions are smooth e.g. If you’ve transferred a big amount of money just before applying for a visit visa, then, it will clearly show that you have borrowed this money from someone else thus your case will get suspicious.
- If you do not have any deposits in your account e.g. monthly income on any deposits, then, it will show that as you don’t have any income source in Pakistan, you would work in United States illegally.
Asking for minimum bank statement?
When you are asking a question about minimum amount of money you should have in your account, it shows that you don’t have enough money in your account or you have less amount of money. IT also raises a question that if you don’t have enough money for tourism in United States, why you are applying for a tourism visa at the first place? It shows that you want to enter in United States to work illegally or involve in some type of illegal activity. You must satisfy the visa officer that your intention of visit is purely tourism and for which you would need to show funds in your account. If you want to visit a family member even then you must have enough money to bear all your expenses and traveling cost. If you have small amount of money in your bank, naturally, you would not want to go for tourism in any country or visit a relative abroad because this money would be used for your day to day expenses. People who travel abroad usually have enough money they can spend for their pleasure. Visa officer will also have this logic in his mind while reviewing your visa application.
