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. Aug 27, 2014 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?

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.
