Bank Statement Calculator for United States visit visa

Please find below the calculator for the estimated amount of bank statement for United States visit visa. One of the most commonly asked question is about the bank statement requirement. Some people ask “how much money should I have in my bank account while applying for visit visa”? or, “How strong my bank statement should be while applying for United States visit visa”? or, “What is the minimum bank statement requirement for USA visit visa”? I would try to answer it in best possible manner so you get clear idea why one needs to show the bank statement and what amount should be there in your bank account. If you want to estimate the amount of money you should have in your bank account before applying for a visit visa, please use the calculator below. This calculator will give you a rough idea on how much money you should have before you think or plan to apply for a US visit visa.


Note: Please use this information on your risk because these figures are for guideline purpose only and not official. These numbers are just the estimates based on my experience only. I have no link to the US embassy and they can still reject your visa even if you have minimum suggested amount in your bank account.

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

  1. Monthly Deposits – How much money is getting deposited each month.
  2. Monthly Withdrawals – How much money you are withdrawing each month.
  3. What is the ending balance on your statement.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

      Dear Imran, is your business registered and do you pay tax? because you would need any type of proof to show that you have a legit business in Pakistan and also a company bank account usually helps too. Fresh passports doesn’t matter if your reason to visit is solid.

    Hi, I am going to Harvard Summer School. I have submitted housing fees which will be required for living in Harvard. I have to attend 2 weeks pre college program course. Please tell me how much balance will be required in my dad’s account? Another question, I lived in an English Environment in my childhood. My school and my condominium was full of English medium environment. Even though I have an American Accent. Can I take English as my native language?

      Dear Muzammil, every university has their expenses mentioned on their website and they are drastically different so you need to contact Harvard for the total expenses that will occur during your stay in United States.
      Regarding native language, I think your native language will be the one spoken in your country and household as a first language. Some universities and colleges relax on the basis of the history so again you need to contact your college if you need to give any language tests etc.

USA janay ki dates wohi mention kijye ga jab apka college off hai. Baki app k parents ka permission letter chahye ho ga k app unkay baghiar travel kar sakti hain.

    Dear Admin,

    I am 32 years old. I have been in Dubai since 10 years but due to job issues i returned back in April 2016 and did not go back. I had to close my bank account in Dubai and I do not hold a bank account in Pakistan. Although my mother has a bank account which is active in Pakistan. Also I have recently appeared for my Master’s exams in Karachi University, and I am an active student as well.
    I am applying for a tourist visa and they require bank statement. Is there a way where my mother can state that she will be funding my expenses and show her bank statement as me being a student.
