Funds are not sufficient, in this scenario, based on the facts presented, it is reasonable to assess that the source of funds is not reliable/unpredictable for long-term support based on the information provided. Despite the presentation and motivation of the request, I am not convinced that the combination of schooling, relocation and costs, regardless of their affordability, will contribute to the advancement of the applicant’s career in a way significant equal to what is planned to achieve the objective. Especially when a similar course could be followed in the country of origin with much lower requirements. It is not clearly explained how this program will benefit the applicant.


Below you will find the new explanatory letter whose request was approved following a second attempt. In this article, I present to you a model of an explanatory letter given by an Enloja subscriber, whose request was approved on June 10, 2022.
