Someone told me as there are not much possibilities to get a visa for him if I would sponsor his trip, because recently I was taking some benefits from Universal credit. Is it true
Customer: replied 5 months ago.

This is true, if need to show that you have solid financial backround by yourself to sponsor someone

please send me a list of documents needed please
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
in this case my neighbour accepts to sponsor him
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I just need to know what documents needed and what we have to do next

From the sponsor:

Scanned Copy of your passport; Sponsor’s Sponsorship Undertaking form; Sponsors’ Letter in Support; Letter from your employer confirming your position and salary. (This will help in proving to the Home Office that you will be financially responsible for your friend during his/her stay), Sponsor’s payslips for the past 6 months; Sponsor’s personal Bank Statements for the last 6 months; Sponsor’s savings Bank Statements, (if any);

Tenancy agreement; Details of where your friend will be staying during her visit; (If not with you) Documents showing any plans you have made during your visit. (Any trips booked during your stay).

My yearly salary is £29k but how the benefits were recent there is still a risk to receive a refuse for his visa

The applicant also will need to provide his original passport in the British Embassy in Albania as well as proof about his financial circumstances and unless it is good, entry clearance officer may not issue a visa. They need to make sure that your friend will go back to his country after his short visit here.

As I have already stated if you will show that you are claiming benefits it will affect the sponsorship requirement.

My Albanian doesn’t work so there aren’t any financial circumstances. He is living there with his parents

This may create problems with visitor visa. Unless he is financially stable in his country home office may not issue a visa

Thanks in advance!Although, I am still happy to answer any further questions you may have. Thank you
No I am not there is no way but it is one of the main requirements and if he is not financially stable it may be difficult to get a visa even if someone is sponsoring him.
