Please confirm if your friend served a prison sentence? And if so how much?
Thank you. How long would be staying for?
Strictly speaking, your friend would not require a VISA. However, as he has a criminal conviction it would be advisable to apply for a Standard Visitor Visa.
This can be applied for online and is currently £100.
Thank you, ***** ***** his last sentence end?
Criminal record certificates will be required. I do believe that it is unlikely that the application would be successful due to the sentence and that parole end this year.
Usually immigration authorities will check the last 10 year history. It may be worth hiring an immigration lawyer to help with the application. I hope this clarifies your question.
Of course please do not hesitate to let me know if you have further questions. Daniel
