Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.

I presume this is someone you have met online and never actually met in person and now they are making arrangements to come and visit you. If so, the this is a scam - there is no such law and it is a commonly used excuse to make you send them money to satisfy these conditions to allow them to travel, but once the money is sent you will never see it again and neither will you see that person. I actually had a different customer with the same quesiton last week, but the amount in their case was £3000 so funny how the 'laws' keep changing depending on which scammer you are dealing with. Stay away and do not send any money!
