We are routinely contacting financial institutions to confirm that the financial documents a student submits with their internship visa supporting documents are genuine. We recommend you do the following:

  • Contact your bank/financial institution and let them know they may be contacted to confirm your documents. Ask your bank to confirm your documents in a timely manner.
  • Include a cover letter from your bank on headed paper, which shows their contact details with your visa supporting documents.
