Visa application

Hi
I have had a request off my turkish friend to write a letter as he is applying for a visa to come and visit me in England. Can anybody tell me what I need to put in the letter? he has mentioned bank details and utility bills but I don't want to put information in the letter that they don't need to know.

Re: Visa application

Hi Searspe, Welcome to the forum.
I would not be giving out bank details or personal bill details willy nilly, may I ask how long you have known this friend.
I mean no disrespect to your friends integrity.
At the present time and current climate, it is just so important to be safe rather than sorry.
The details your friend suggested - is this to be added to a letter you are sending to the authorities?
To whom is your friend suggesting you send the letter?
I am not familiar with this concept Searspe having never done the like before.
Someone more familiar may be along soon and will maybe be able to advise.

I have known him for four years and bought an apartment through him. I have no reason to not trust him but hearing all the horror stories I need to be sure that this information is needed

Re: Visa application

Do you mean you bought an apartment from him or you bought it and it is in his name, not yours ???

Re: Visa application

Why does he need you to write a letter, is it to say he his travelling to visit you etc,I know an estate agent from Altinkum who is in UK all the time, backwards and forwards to Turkey. He does not appear to have any difficulty coming in and out. I'm afraid I don't know enough regarding the concept of visa's etc and a Turkish citizen travelling to the UK.
May I ask just out of curiosity do you have your Tapu etc ??

Re: Visa application

Does that mean you have the tapu in your name ? The complications ?? spending time did it resolve the issue and the tapu is now in your name, it's a wonder he did not realise complications were in place prior to selling to you.

Re: Visa application

I wrote a letter for someone I knew to aid his visa application and I did not have to put any personal details in it.

All I put was how long I had known him and that I knew he was only visiting the UK on a business trip.

As far as I know the only bank/personal details the authorities are interested are the visa applicants as they want to make sure they will be returning to Turkey.

I would say if he has suggested that you give personal details that you must not do it.
