Re: Application for UK visitor Visa for Jonathan Doro; Date of Birth; Nationality
I am writing to confirm that I wish to invite Jonathan Doro to visit me in the UK for 4 weeks in order to attend my university graduation ceremony and also stay afterwards for a short holiday. The date of my graduation is 12 July 2009 and I hope you will allow him to come before then so that he can attend my graduation. After graduation, I would like him to stay for a brief 3-week holiday with my family.
I have been studying at the First Class Degrees University where I recently completed a degree course and have leave to remain in the UK indefinitely.
I am able to accommodate him for the whole duration of his stay in the UK and I will also pay for his living expenses. Please find attached evidence of my accommodation and also evidence of my financial status which shows that I am able to meet Jonathan Doro living costs during the time he will be staying with us.
I have enclosed the following documents for your consideration as required:
- Copy of passport and the page with UK Visa
- Mortgage Documents as proof of accommodation
- 6 months bank statements
- Certificate of student status and letter from the University confirming graduation date
