3.1) Will the VO be anxious that the FD was created in my title very lately?
3.2) Ought to I present the FD receipt in any respect? Or only a financial institution certificates saying that I’ve FD’s price a lot?
SriHarsha: That is one thing difficult concerning the visa…
Few VO’s choose financial institution statements than FDs. That too of your mother and father. FDs are the second precedence. FD on scholar’s title offers the VO an opportunity to ask extra questions or many inquiries concerning the cash issues which we’re, usually, not conscious of. In my case, I by hearted properly earlier than. However generally it would not matter in any respect. He might by no means ask you. No matter you do, be certain that every thing is authorized.
Deepak: I hate to gate-crash your get together. However I bought rejected for offering 1.5 occasions the money of what was talked about within the I-20. The officer wished for two years.
After all this stuff are very time dependent and differ from individual to individual. However, I nonetheless thought it’s higher to let you understand.
Protected guess, since you’re doing it, would possibly as properly strive 2X as a substitute if 1.5X (X = amount of cash talked about for one annual yr within the I-20).

2. That could be a fairly good concept. Have the financial institution assertion, and in case they ask, carry the FD deposits. Make it as much less shady a deal as attainable.
