my mother got her entry refused to the uk 7 years ago, when she came to visit a friend, now she I am married to an English man and I am a residence here with the Indefinitely Leave to Remain, and she is coming to visit my self and my husband/.We have sent her a letter with all our information to the immigration officer and we will be supporting her fully while she stays here.Should this be enough? We are getting a bit worried because we do not want my mother to go through the same thing again,Many thanks
Province/Country relating to question : UK
Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to rate my answer 3 STARS OR ABOVE so that I am credited for my time.The requirements for a family visitors visa as follows :you are 18 or over;you intend to visit the UK for no more than 6 months (or 12 months if you will be accompanying an academic visitor);you intend to leave the UK at the end of your visit;you have enough money to support and accommodate yourself without working or help from public funds, or you and any dependents will be supported and accommodated by relatives or friends;you can meet the cost of the return or onward journey; andyou are not in transit to a country outside the 'Common Travel Area' (Ireland, the UK, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands).As you will note from the above requirements the main requirements are that your mother has enough funds to accommodate herself and has adequate accommodation. You should provide with a letter of financial support, your bank details as well as funds she has available in her account if necessary. You should also provide an accommodation letter for her that you will adequately accommodate her during her stay in the uk, this should be accompanied with a house report stating that your property will not become overcrowded if your mother also residents with you during her vacation. You should also provide evidence of her ties to her home country and provide evidence that she will have reasons to return to her country of residence. Provided that you have submitted enough evidence regarding the above mentioned, then her application would have a good chance of success. I hope this answers your question if so kindly leave positive feedback so I can get credited for my time. Kind regards

ok we are not applying for a visitar visa, we had just sent her all the letters above mentioned, and she will arrive at the uk border with those letters with her, we will be supporting her fully financially and she will reside with us in our home, we will be waiting for her at the arrival hall. She will also present to then a copy of her return ticket to Brazil, and also a copy of our tickets because we will be going on holiday to Spain for 7 days while she is here. So you reckon this should be enough as some people are saying we should had applied for a Visa before her travel????? Thank you for helping
