I am planning to apply for a Schengen visa to visit France. I have an attestation d'acceuil, but the visa requires I submit bank statement for the past 3 months. I can get this statement, but the problem is that my company has been paying my salary in cash for the past months, and I place the money into the account by myself.

Can I submit the following?

  • my accounting book (current account)
  • letter from the bank stating that I have money in it
  • payslips for the past 3 months

Will that satisfy the financial requirements for the visa?

    I believe it would, but it might be more sensible to get a verified bank statement from the bank instead of your accounting book. It will show the monthly credit in your account which you do in order to deposit your salary. – Aditya Somani Aug 27 '14 at 16:52
  • Thank you for your quick reply reply so it is better to submit all documemts(letter from bank,saving book,payslips)in addition to the bank statment. Is it ok? – samaa Aug 27 '14 at 17:59
  • I'm no authority on the matter, but yes that's what I'd do. :) – Aditya Somani Aug 27 '14 at 18:01
  • Read this answer: travel.stackexchange.com/a/66105/27650 it tells all you need to know about bank statements for visa applications. – Willeke Oct 28 '16 at 18:07

I submitted exactly those things earlier when I got my Schengen sometime ago (except for the paystubs, even though I had a part time job as a student in my university) and the documents were accepted as complete.
