  2. I am applying for visitor visa online for my parents. I am writing an invitation letter. I am writing an explanation letter on my parent's behalf. Now I have a doubt whether signature is required on these letters. Should I print them, sign it, scan them back to upload into the portal?

    Should I write a letter stating my parents names belong to them because initials in the front of the name in certain documents, initials at the back of the name in certain document, no surnames used....

  9. If your mum is applying for a TRV, she must prove that she has reasonable funds to afford the visit even though you could eventually pay/support her visit.

    So, yes, she must include her bank statement + other financial investments or financial resources (rental income, bank term/time deposits, shares/stocks, pension funds, etc).

    For a TRV, as the host, you can only invite your mum You cannot sponsor her visit
