On 2 October 2012 , UKBA published a list of financial institutions from which it will only accept financial statements from Bangladesh to support visa applications made under the points-based system (PBS). This list will come into force from 1 November 2012.
If you apply for a PBS visa from 1 November 2012, you must submit evidence from one of the listed financial institutions to show that you have sufficient funds. Your visa application will be refused if you provide financial statements from an institution which is not on this list.

Important update: on 16 October 2012, UKBA cancelled the list and announced that it will issue new lists as soon as possible. Please see our post of 16 October 2012 here.
