Thanks for your reply.
They will need to apply for a visitor's visas.
The eligibility criteria for a visitor's visa is as follow, is that you need to show that:-
You have to try and show them that they have continuing obligations in Turkey which will continue after the visit and therefore convince them that they are not a risk of overstay. Things like a letter from their employer stating they have jobs (if they do) and are 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 (6 months of) showing the money they have available for the purpose of the visit.
They can stay for up to six months and must leave at the end of it. They cannot seek to secure a more permanent stay whilst here - it would not be entertained by the UKBA and would be a reason to reject any future application they made.
If you will assist them during the intended stay you should go to a local solicitor to draft a sponsorship declaration in which you state the terms of the visit, that they are to return at the end of it, that you shall accommodate you 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. You should also attach evidence of your accommodation if they are to stay with you to evidence the fact that they will not need to pay for separate accommodation. You should also submit bank statements showing the money you have available to cover the cost of unforeseen expenses.
It should cost around £60+Vat for each stat dec and I would suggest both you and your husband execute them and send them to your mother/brother to submit with their applications.
They can apply via the UKBA website:-
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.
