I want to apply for a canada visitor visa. Can i use travellers cheques as proof of funds instead of a bank statement?
Your bank statement is much more than the sum at the end. People applying for visas ignore this to their peril. It shows you have a steady income, that you are not spending more than your income and so on. This is why people who just get their "rich uncle" dump a large sum into their account at the time of visa application often get refused.
