I'm an Indonesian citizen who is planning to apply for a UK visa and a Schengen visa. I have also lived in the United States since 2012 so I'm a legal US permanent resident with valid green card and state ID. I'm currently a full-time college student but planning on taking a semester off to travel to the UK and some countries in Europe.
Because I'm going to school full-time, I only work part-time. My dad who still lives in Indonesia has been supporting me and will also be doing so for my planned trip so I have some questions:
1) I will submit my bank statement but will it be okay if I also submit my dad's bank statement, even though he lives in another country?
Along with his bank statement, I will also have him go to a notary and sign an affidavit of support and I will also give them his contacts in Indonesia to proof that he is indeed my father.
I definitely want to do this to avoid 'funds parking'.
2) The UK requires people from Indonesia to have a TB test but I have been a legal residence of the United States for six years, will I be required to get one as well?
I will apply for the Schengen visa at the Italian Consulate General in Houston and the UK visa by mailing all of my documents to the UK embassy in D.C.
