Proof of Funds

Post by Scoobler » Mon Apr 12, 2021 11:06 pm

I was hoping to work in the UK as an Au Pair beginning in September, but I won’t have my proof of funds by then, could I use my parents’ bank account for the proof of funds? I am 18 and I still live with them and am still under their health insurance, and I live in Canada.

You cannot use your parents' bank account to show funds, you need to have your own account with at least £2,530 in it for 28 days before applying for the T5 YMS visa
