									                         Invitation letter from the student
In order for someone to visit you in the UK they need to show that they have been invited by
you. This adds support to their application and provides a reason for the visit. You will be
known as the ‘sponsor’ whether or not you are providing financial support and
accommodation.

Your letter of invitation should provide the following points:

       •   Who you are and why you are in the UK.
       •   Who you are inviting to visit you, their relation to you
       •   How long you intend for them to visit you and the reason for the visit.
       •   If your visit will accommodate and finance themselves, confirmation of this.
       •   If you intend to provide accommodation, confirmation of this.
       •   If you intend to provide finance, confirmation of this.
       •   That you know you will be standing as sponsor and that you will ensure they
           return to their home country.
       •   That you hope the visitor visa will be granted.

Below is an example of a landlord letter.


DATE

Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Application of <visitor’s name>

My name is <student’s name> and I am a student at The University of Liverpool studying
<course title>. I am currently in my <first/second/third/etc> year.

I would like to invite <family member/friend>, named <visitor’s name>, to visit me whilst I am
studying in the UK. I wish for them to visit me for a period of <number of days/weeks>. The
reason for the visit is <graduation/holiday/other>.
               -------------------------------------------------------------------
During this time, my visitor will be providing his/her own funds in order to be financially
maintained and accommodated in the UK. I believe that they have provided information
about how they intend to do this.
                                               OR
During this time, my visitor will be accommodated by me at the property where I live
<address of property>. I rent this property. I have included a letter from my landlord
explaining that s/he knows my visitor will be staying with me and that this is acceptable. My
visitor will be providing their own finances however for maintaining themselves in the UK. I
believe that they have provided information about how they intend to do this.
                                               OR
During this time, my visitor will be accommodated by me at the property where I live
<address of property>. I rent this property. I have included a letter from my landlord
explaining that s/he knows my visitor will be staying with me and that this is acceptable. My
visitor will also be supported by me financially whilst they are in the UK. I have included bank
statements to show that I am able to support them.
               -------------------------------------------------------------------
I request that <visitor’s name> be granted a visitor visa to enter the UK and visit me. I
understand that I will be standing as sponsor and that my reputation as a sponsor will be
damaged if they do not abide by their visa conditions, including returning to their home
country at the end of the visitor visa.

If you have any further questions, please contact me.

Yours faithfully
