Resolved Question:

If i am a sponsor for an individual applying for a general visitors visa to enter the UK (covering their costs and accommodation), what are my legal obligations? What happens if for some reason the visitor is in breach of their visa conditions eg length of stay? What are the legal consequences to me?

Hello,

There are no legal consequences for you if the person overstays their visa.

Your commitment only extends to you paying for their expenses, nothing else.
