Hey everyone,

I plan on applying for an Ancestry visa in the next week or two with the hopes of heading to Scotland in September sometime. I went to the bank today and got a "statement of accounts" from them, which details all my assets and liabilities. I do have a decent amount of money in my chequing, savings, and RRSPs; however, I'm making monthly payments on a loan which has a balance of around $17,000 currently. Most of this is student loan debt that has been consolidated.

So I guess my question is: is this going to look super bad on my application, or can I explain that it's student debt and am diligently paying it off and will continue to do so?

Alternatively, should I just print out statements of my chequing and savings and RRSPs, get those stamped by the bank, and not mention this whole loan situation on my application at all? Would that be shady?

Thanks in advance for your advice! Cheers. :)
