    Posted: 26/December/2009 at 19:37
Hi,
I would like to send an invitation for visit to a friend (female) who is currently residing in the united kingdom. She is on an indian passport, aged 29 and is a United Kingdom permanent resident. I have been advised that i would need to send her a letter of invitation to indicate that i would be willing to provide her with accomodation during her 2 week visit. Could you please advise if this would be a problem i.e. the immigration would suspect that she and i are in a relationship and refuse the tourist visa? Would i need to provide anything else besides the letter of invitation? She will be funding her food etc and will be showing about $6000 in the bank account as well as credit card limits and a letter from the employer stating that her leave has been approved.

Could you please advise if instead of myself i should get another friend send her invite instead (a female). Also if she and i do end up in a relationship sometime in the future and i wish to sponsor her would there be a problem i.e. she not stating me as one of her friends in Australia in the upcoming tourist visa application?

thanks

Adam, I don't see a problem with what you propose. If she is a UK permanent resident is there any reason she has been unable to obtain a UK passport? It just may make things easier, I would think.

Please post your legal questions in a forum rather than sending a PM. Thanks.

Hi Martino,
She has about a year to go to obtain her UK passport. What do you think is the best course of action. Me or my friend sending her a letter of invite?

Cheers,

Adam

I don't think there will be a problem either way.
