Certificate of deposit

Certificate of deposit

The Student and Child Student guidance confirms that certificates of deposits can be used to evidence funds if the document is issued by a bank which confirms that you have deposited or invested a sum of money, held it for the required 28 day period, and that you can access the funds at any time. 

The certificate of deposit should:

  • have been issued no more than 31 days before your date of application; and
  • show that the money has been held for at least 28 days

This means that the certificate of deposit must have been issued within 31 days of the date of application and at least 28 days must have elapsed between the date of the deposit and the date of issue of the certificate.

The certificate must show that the funds have been held for at least 28 days before the issue date of the certificate. UKVI will not consider funds held after the date of application.
