    I have received verification letter in similar format from BOA but does not have bank manager signature or stamp on it. Is it mandatory to have bank manager signature on letter?

      Well, I guess, if has digital signature from higher authority, should be fine. If not, how can someone validate that those are real…right ?

      Yes, it indicates that they are sponsoring their trip, that’s the difference. You are only sending invite letter, but not funding their trip.

    Do I need to make sure that I have at least 10K current balance available on my account when applying for the bank verification letter? What if its low at the time I apply for the letter ?

    This question is directed to the person who obtained the BOA verification letter. I am facing the same trouble with BOA. On their call-center , I requested for a letter of this format – All I received was a letter just stating my account balances.
    I’m at a place in the US and the nearest BOA branch is about 250 miles away, So I’m not in a position to travel all the way to talk to someone physically.
    They claim that they have a few templates and are un-willing to give something close to the format mentioned above.

    Assume that I’m unable to get such a letter – Can a letter that simply states my account balance suffice. Please address this concern of mine

    Best Regards,
    Sitaram. S

      You summary of deposit accounts should suffice. I got a similar one from Chase – which contains:

      1. Date
      2. Account holder’s address
      3. Summary of Deposit Accounts: A/C Number, A/C Type, Open date, Current Balance, Avg. Balance (12 months)
