Bank details for visa

Hello. I always knew that when applying for a visa you had to show a certain amount of funds for each year applied for. I have know heard that your bank statement has to show source of funds. That is ok for those receiving a pensin for example, but if you brought funds in cash into Turkey and then into account you could not prove where they came from. I was told it was to prove that foreigners are not working illegally in Turkey. Anyone else heard of this?

Re: Bank details for visa

even now ,if you go through UK customs with over a certain amount in cash they have the right to ask you to prove where you got the money from [Bank Acc /etc ] .If you cant show proof ,they can confiscate it .

Re: Bank details for visa

I applied for my residence permit a couple of weeks ago in Mugla. All I had to do is show that I had a certain amount in a Turkish bank account and provide a copy of my bank booklet (and the original at the interview with the Foreigner's Dept) as proof. My bank booklet doesn't show where the money came from and I wasn't asked!

Hope this helps.

Re: Bank details for visa

Let's do some brainstorming with cause and effect relations:
Cause 1- Countries don't want foreigners come and work in their countries.
Cause 2- All people in the World have to work only if they don't have enough money to survive.
Effect 1- All countries think if a foreigner has enough money to live, she/he will not work in their countries. When you remember the Cause #2, this is a pretty rational precaution to prevent foreigners from working.

Cause 3: Countries always want more money from foreign countries via tourism, export, etc.
Effect 2 - If a foreigner shows enough money I don't think there is a country in the World that will bother with the source of money (as long as it's not in cash form, not paper money-- just to prevent illegally earned monies entering)
If a foreigner shows a foreign country little money that is enough for himself to live only for a few months, any country will want to know the source of his money just to make sure if he will always have enough money. I think everything depends on the amount of money.

Re: Bank details for visa

We had to provide certified copies of our Turkish bank account statement last week at Mugla, together with information about pensions.
The big problem is money laundering and there was a lot of pressure from the US a few years ago for automatic reporting of any transaction over 10k to the FBI. They already have auto reporting in US of any transaction of $10k or more. Fortunately the UK government of the day refused to agree.

Re: Bank details for visa

I renewed my STRP this week in Manavgat, all I did for the funds was to print off the internet a copy of my High Interest Bank Account, I also printed off details of my works pension showing the annual pension which I didn't have translated and they accepted both with no questions asked.
