Can I deduct the tuition fee which I paid from a foreign bank account?


If the tuition fee of my study is paid via foreign bank account transfer, am I still eligible to deduct the fee in my tax return?


Yes. For the deduction it doesn't matter from which of your bank accounts you paid the tuition fee. So if you paid the fee from a foreign account you can claim a deduction of education costs (if all other conditions are satisfied of course).
