THanks for your reply.


He needs to apply for a visitor's visa. He can do this online via the UKBA's Visa services website. THe criteria is as follows:-

  • you want 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 do not intend to take paid or unpaid employment

    In order to demonstrate the above he should submit documentary evidence of his ongoing responsibilities and commitments in Turkey. Things should be evidence of his job (letter from employer stating he is to return) and accommodation (continuing tenancy or evidence of home ownership) back home.


    In addition you should execute sponsorship declaration drafted by a solicitor for around £50 which would be sworn by you stating that you are inviting him only for a short period of time, shall accommodate him during his stay and will meet the cost of any unforeseen expenses that should occur. It would also state that you are aware he may not attempt to seek another form of visa whilst he is here as it may prejudice his future applications for visa were he to make any.
