Maraming nagaakala na kapag nag submit ng mga supporting documents ay “the more, the better”. But this is not always true. There are documents that are less helpful and sometimes mas nakakasira pa. There are some documents that should not be used as evidence in a visit visa application:

  • bank statements or letters issued more than 1 year before the date of application
  • credit card statements
  • driving licence
  • educational certificates that are not listed as required for your visa
  • evidence of car ownership
  • personal photographs
  • notarial certificates
  • business cards
  • hotel bookings
  • flight bookings (unless transiting)
  • photocopies of bank cards
  • certificates relating to leisure activities, for example sports trophies
  • travel insurance
  • sponsor’s utility bills
  • sponsor’s council tax bills

You may be asked to provide additional information by a decision maker.
