I am looking for info on helping my egyptian friend to come

Customer Question

I am looking for info on helping my egyptian friend to come to Belfast. Either on a holiday visa or a working visa. What money does he need in his account or can I supply my bank details to say I can support him through his stay? I am traveling to Egypt every 8 weeks and would prefer it that I spend the money in my country instead.
Any info would be greatly appreciated

Hello,

Your friend may apply for a general visitor visa which is valid for 6 months. A work visa will be hard to obtain unless he has a job lined up and an employer willing to sponsor him etc.

There is no set amount of money he needs to show, as long he has enough to cover his stay in the UK and accomodate himself without recourse to public funds.

You can say that he will stay with you and that you will provide an x amount of money for his stay in the UK.

See here for the documents required: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/documents/out-of-country/visitors.pdf

How to apply information is here: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/visiting/general/apply/

All the best
