Bank Account Statement in Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa Application

I have already written that I applied my bank account statement. It was a part of the supporting documents of my Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa application on the Stage 2. At the same time, I got one more question about this topic.


“Although maintenance funds in the form of a bank statement is not required as a supporting doc and as you also emphasized on your website that it is optional. I hope this will not affect the outcome of the stage 2 decision as I plan not to submit a bank statement?”


Following the main philosophy of Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa route – your main asset is not material, this is your talent in a digital field. It is impossible to measure it by current bank account status. Talents are poor sometimes :).

Hence, the absence or existence of bank statement in your application does not influence directly on the outcome of your and your dependents’ Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa applications.

Do not think too much about this option if you do not intent to attach it.

In case you want to show your financial abilities – keep the high standards. Please, provide the original bank statement on the headed paper for the last 3 months. It is better to provide it in English. Or you need to attach an official translation. Your bank account statement in Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa Application has to be a trusted document. Then it will bring its beneficial value to your visa application.
