Proof of Funds or Financial Capacity
One of the basics of Student Visa Applications is the requirement of Proof of Funds or Financial Capacity. For almost all countries (barring very few), students are required to provide evidentiary proof that they are able to not only pay for the fee but also normal living expenses for the duration of the stay.
• Fees and Other University Charges – Students are often required to make payment of this component in advance to confirm admission offer. Since the payments are made up front, the proof of this component comprises of receipt of payments made.
• Living Expenses – Most of the countries have a basic minimum living expense requirement which is specified. The students are in turn requested to provide proof that they have access to the same.
Types of Documents accepted under Proof of Funds
There is no standard list of documents that would be required by countries abroad. As the application process for the countries vary so does the student visa requirements and accordingly the list of documents that are required as proof of funds.
• Bank Account Statements – The universities/ Visa Consulates might require you to submit your/ your sponsors’ bank account statements for a specific period. It should be a scanned copy of statements in original and not e-mail statements, duly stamped and signed by the bank. The bank statement must be original, on bank’s letterhead, stamped and signed by the bank.
• Loan Approval/ Disbursement Letter – Students can also provide a Loan Approval Letter as proof of funds. This is easy enough to get from the bank you have applied a loan from. While the banks might have a set format, the letter essentially conveys the approval of the bank of loaning the specific amount to the student for his higher education abroad.
• Scholarship Letters – In case you have been given a scholarship, the student can also attach the scholarship letter as evidence of financial capacity. This letter is often provided by the University/ Institution that grants the scholarship.
• Affidavit of Support/ Sponsorship – An Affidavit of Support is not a Financial Document but rather a validation of financial support being provided to the student. An Affidavit of Support or Sponsorship is a notarized document on a Stamp Paper (often of INR 10 or INR 20 denomination), which clearly mentions that another person (parents/ spouse/ relative) would be sponsoring your education and paying for (or can afford) your fees and living expenses.
• CA Certificate – Some countries also require what is commonly referred to as a CA Certificate. Prepared by a certified CA, the document specifies the actual assets held by the student/ sponsor as well as the liabilities.
• Property Evaluation Report – This is more common for Australia and New Zealand Visas. In case a student has applied for a Student Loan and the same was procured against property, the student is also required to attach a Property Evaluation Report alongside the Loan Approval Letter.
• GPF/ EPF Statement confirming ability to withdraw – Many countries also accept the funds available in your/ parent/guardian’s Provident Fund Account. These are official statement issued by the Provident Fund Disbursing Authority clearly stating the amount of funds available in the account along with the ability to withdraw.
