Ask an UK Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I think the lady is here on a visitors visa. She has lived in UK before for a year as a voluntary co-worker with Camphill--that is where I met her briefly in 2009, over a period of about two months before the lady, (a
woman in her late 30's), returned to India, to Nagaland near Butan. On her return to the UK this time, on I think, a Visitor's Visa, she parted company from the package tour she was travelling with, once she got to Bath, and came to The Hatch Camphill Community, where she had worked before and was informed that she couldn't stay, even as a guest, because of CRB regulations. Since I knew her slightly I (foolishly) offered to find her a place to stay temporarily, and contacted my friend referred to in my initial contact with you. My friend had never met this lady before and simply allowed her to stay in her house till, she assumed, she would return to India.
My friend did not execute a statutory declaration or sponsorship letter in support of this lady's application for a visitor's visa--in fact she never even knew her before Iphoned my friend.
Yes, you are correct in your question.
