I'm going to apply for a visit visa with 2 of my dependants. I'm wondering if I can use my UK bank statement which has been idle for couple of years. Currently, I'm living in Pakistan since I completed my education back in 2013. I'm wondering If I transfer some amount in that account before applying for a Visit visa. This is important to add here that my bank account is active but no transaction has made since September 2013!
The visa officials want to see two things:
- Can the visitors pay for the their travel and living expenses?
- Can the visitors reasonably afford to spend that much money on travel, or does it look like a major investment into an illegal immigration attempt?
The first question requires a certain amount of money. The second question requires a steady income which leaves enough after typical cost-of-living expenses to save for a trip.
Using that old account means you can't show steady deposits of your salary. That will be difficult or impossible to explain.
