Hi,


Thanks for your question. Can you just clarify why you think they need to apply for a visa and whether they are normally/legally living in Brazil please

 

Kind regards,

 


Tom

I never mentioned visas. They normally and legally live in brazil and are coming here for a period of two weeks to visit family/enjoy a holiday
Solicitor: Thomas, Solicitor replied 8 years ago

Okay, you mentioned a letter of invitation and I assumed you thought this was necessary for the purpose of obtaining a visa.

 

Why do you think you have to draft a letter?

 

Kind regards,


Tom

I'm sorry but if you think Uk customs "will only consider refusal if the persons wishing to enter the UK have a criminal records"

You have no real knowledge of what goes on at heathrow airport on a regular basis.

I have heard many stories from people i actually know getting mistreated - kept and interrogated, families split up and not even fed for hours. This is my worry as my brazilian family do not speak english.

Your advice "if you wish to play it safe then they can apply to the British Embassy in Brazil for a visa prior to visiting"

 

Is of no use to me as i explained previously.

 

I shall not be paying you a penny for irrelevant advice

I found out more from goverment websites and much quicker too.
