He needs to apply for a visitor's visa, which would permit him to come here for up to 6 months
The eligibility criteria for a visitor's visa is as follow, is that you need to show that:-
- Youwant to visit the UK for no more than six months;
- You intend to leave the UK at the end of your visit;
- You have enough money to support yourself during your stay in the UK without working or needing help from public funds
You have to try and show them that he has continuing obligations in Eygpt which will continue after the visit and therefore convince them that he is not a risk of overstay. Things like a letter from his employer stating he has a job (if he does) and is expected to return to continue that job, return flight tickets, evidence of continuing accommodation (eg. tenancy agreement of evidence of ownership of a property, bank statements showing the money he has available).
He can stay for up to six months and must leave at the end of it. He cannot seek to secure a more permanent stay whilst he - it would not be entertained by the UKBA
If you will assist him during the intended stay you should ask them to go to a local solicitor to draft a sponsorship declaration in which you state the terms of his visit, that you are to return at the end of it, that you shall accommodate him (if you will) and shall pay the costs of any unforeseen expenses that should occur during his stay so that nether of you will need to access public funds.
Only he can state that he will not work, which he should do when he makes his application.
The executed sponsorship application should be sent to him to submit with his application.
If he is to stay for a long time he will need to demonstrate considerable funds in his account to pay the costs of his time here.
This should cost around £50+vat and you can find immigration solicitors via:-
He can make the application online via the UKBA's visa services website:-
