Proof of return to the UK

by kaylie2497 » 28 Feb 2014, 15:41

Hi everybody,

I applied for my visa online last night, all went well! But at the end of the checklist I things to bring with you to your embassy interview it said "proof of return". I can understand if you are at uni you could get a letter stating your course etc, but I am not at university. My current job ends in May, and I will not have a job to go back to after camp (obviously I will try and find something between now and then, and also hunt like crazy on my return) but what can I use as proof? Bank statements, phone contract bills? Perhaps a letter from a childcare agency stating I am looking for work?!

Is anybody else in the same boat as me?

Please help!

I had this issue last year, my mum wrote a letter just saying I would return to the UK because of family and family commitments. If you can get a family member to just write a letter to explain that you have no reasons to stay in America and that you want to return to the UK after camp as you want to return to your family that will be enough. They didn't even look at my letter last year and I heard a lot of others say the same but you need it just incase x

I was worrying about this as well as I'm going to have to leave my job to go away.

Thanks Emma-Leigh for the advice - I'll make sure I get a family one just in case :)

If you go on the Visa Powerpoint on your CAD, there's a list near the end of what can be classed as 'proof of return'. If you have a job you're going back to, get them to write a letter saying that you'll be starting back when you return from camp. You might also want to include a header or business card like you do with your reference for CA? :)

Is my proof of student loan for nest year at Uni good enough do you think?

Or tenancy agreement for my house next year at Uni?

I'd say both of them would work! Make sure you take a few different forms of proof, just to cover yourself but they never looked at mine the first year. Better being safe than sorry though! :)

Anyone else had similar problems?
