After the big success of our previous post on how to prove your money to the British government, we have had some comments from people that do not feel comfortable taking their bank statement to translate and that would prefer presenting a letter from their bank in their visa application. If you are requesting this in Mexico, this is called "carta de referencias bancarias".
Hope you find this useful!
Mexico City, November 25, 2014
Dear Sir or Madam,
I hereby provide you with the information we have on our files, regarding the account that is mentioned below.
Interbank wire: [the CLABE for those that have Mexican accounts]
Current Balance: MXP $#
I can confirm that the aforementioned account has maintained this balance without any operation in the last two months, and that those funds are available anytime, either by check or ATM.
Being this letter extended at the request of the account holder and without any further due, I put myself at your disposition if there are any further doubts.
