I have been interviewing for an Engineering position with a company among the fortune 500+. After passing a series of rounds, they invited me over for a final onsite Interview in 2 weeks time, they sent a tentative Travel itinerary and a visa letter. (They are sponsoring the entire trip).
I have just made my visa application.
I am a fresh graduate with no "Strong Ties" to my home country, ("Strong Ties" - by definition and according all I have been reading here for the past 3 hours being:- "Single", "Orphaned", "Recently Graduated", "low paying Part-time job"). (to my disadvantage)
I am sure my Country is statistically on the high side of those who try to use deceptive means to obtain visa or stay longer than required. (to my disadvantage)
I was truthful while filling the form, however, one of my bank statements has a different address from my nominal home address used in all other documents. (my major concern)
The reason was because I opened it 3 years ago when I went for a paid internship program in a state ~1000km from my home state.
I am slated for my biometrics early next week. the bank cannot change my address for me in due time because the bureaucracy involved takes many days.
This is the first visa I've applied for. Considering the fact that I am implicitly at a disadvantage, Is the discrepancy in address an automatic disqualification?
My understanding is that the ECO's decision will be based on "evidences". Do I need further "evidence" to explain this discrepancy?
