I am an Indian national. I sold a good chunk of stocks yesterday and should have the money credited in my account in the next 3 days. I have about 5 weeks to apply for both a Japan tourist visa and a UK student visa. Without this stock money, I do not have enough money as usually expected for Japan/UK visas, but my balance is not too shoddy either.
Processing for a Japan visa takes about 5 days and for a UK visa about 3 weeks. Given that visa officers are generally wary of sudden bumps in cash and I am in a time crunch, I would like to know if the stock sale can pass for a non-suspicious source of funding if I apply for a Japan visa next week. I'm also open to suggestions on anything else I can do.
