I currently reside in the UK as an international student and I am planning to take a trip to Europe, and therefore I am applying for Schengen Visa.
In the last 3-4 months, for my daily expenses I used my foreign debit card and my UK bank account have a few weeks with 0 pound balance and no transactions, however I have recently paid substantial money for tuition and started to use it more frequently. If I put enough money on my UK bank account ( more than minimum requirement by the visa centre), will this be enough to provide evidence for the proof of finance? Since my UK bank account was rarely used, I wonder if visa centre would question my financial sufficiency.
As an alternative, I can request online bank reference and statements from my bank account back at home, but I wonder if visa centre accept financial documents which were not issued at the branch by the manager.
