i have a egyptian boyfriend in egypt, i want him to come stay here for a bit in the uk with me, on a holiday visa. for maybe a few months as i have college, but the safara said he will need lots of money but why when he is staying with me? egypt is so strict i dont understand?

If your egyptian how do you get out of egypt on holiday to the uk? do u apply for just a holiday visa?

    it’s not egypt that is strict its England. you need to write a letter of invitation to him stating which date he’s staying with you from to which date he leaves. . he needs travel insurance. which is pricey. he needs money for a visa in to our country. he also needs enough money to pay his own way in england. it isn’t just like that for an egyptian it works like that for a lot people coming in to our country. insurance is a legality. You will have to put your phone number on the letter. so they can ring you and verify it.

    Tell him to try a travel Agent. As for cash he may have to borrow from his friends or family. The embassy does not think it will be good for you to send the money as you may not see it again!

    lol well the problem here that the UK embassy is the so strict coz they r the one asking for papers egypt has nothing in this so for u to make him stay with u few months its nearly impossible he has to have a good reason like let him join a collage or sth but still will need to prove that he could financially support his studies and accommodation in the UK

    send him invitation letter for a one week visit thats better and easier

    One of my friends had the same situation your in.

    Anyway, what he did was, he wrote a letter explaining the situation to the visa department and they replied and set up a meeting to discuss terms about the duration of stay and what reasons.

    After the meeting, they granted him permission and he was able to come to the UK and stay for 3 months.
