    Monzo is a bank established and regulated in the UK. Why would they not?

  • Are you referring to statements downloaded online or those requested via chat monzo.com/help/account-and-profile/bank-statement-how-to

  • @Traveller Am referring to the stamped bank statement that can be requested from the monzo chat. Jul 30 '20 at 14:54
  • Monzo has a UK bank licence. They're as much bank as any other bank. Especially, if you get mailed the statements with proper stamping and everything. Not everyone will even accept a downloaded statement from Lloyd's Bank, so this is no different. Just a different process of requesting stamped statements.

The only criteria that the UK government issues to travellers for financial documents is very broad:

  1. Other documents you may want to provide – all visitors

This section provides guidance on the types of documents that you may want to provide to help us consider your application against the Immigration Rules.

  • ...
  • financial documents showing that you have sufficient funds available. These must clearly show that you have access to the funds, such as: bank statements

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/visitor-visa-guide-to-supporting-documents/guide-to-supporting-documents-visiting-the-uk

The guidance documents issued by the UK Home Office for visit visas also does not mention anything specific about financial supporting documents.

Your application will be judged on its merit - UK immigration deals with bank statements and other financial statements from an extremely diverse range of sources and will have means at their disposal to evaluate their accuracy and authenticity as a result.

I see no reason why documents from a specific bank would not be accepted so long as they pass the desired scrutiny.
