Hello,

Just a quick question - I have all the needed paperwork but we would like to keep the original bank statements.  Do we have to turn these in or are copies enough? Can they look at the originals and then take the copies?  We just want to know what our rights are in this case.

Also, we have many photos, email exchanges, letters... is this enough for the proof?

Thank you!

If you provide copies too, they will not keep the originals of the bank statements. The alternative would be to send bank stamped copies instead. They would have to be stamped on every page.

Sorry, I forgot you were not applying from the US but the same applies in that you will need to provide originals or bank stamped copies. You will get the originals of whatever you supply back.
