If the visit is for a holiday and you are a relative or a friend, a letter of sponsorship explaining your relationship to the applicant and why the visit is taking place at this particular time may be helpful.
If the visit is for a special family occasion (for example a wedding, a birth celebration or an important anniversary) an invitation detailing the event, when and where it is to take place and a letter of sponsorship would be helpful. If the person whom you are sponsoring is not a close relative or is perhaps one of several people invited, it would be helpful to know why the applicant was chosen to attend before others.
If you are offering to provide support and accommodation and/or to bear the cost of transportation to the UK, you must provide evidence of your ability to do so. The following would be helpful:
• a letter of sponsorship detailing your occupation and salary and how you will be supporting and accommodating the applicant. There is no need to have this letter attested before a solicitor or Commissioner for Oaths • evidence of your ability to finance the trip, such as copies of your last six months bank or building society statements and salary slips. If you are in receipt of public funds the Entry Clearance Officer will need to consider carefully how long you will be able to maintain additional people on limited means; you will not be able to seek additional public funds to support the applicant

TO THE SPONSOR:
According to U.S. Immigration requirements, “all schools are required to
obtain certification that the applicant has financial resources adequate to
provide for his or her expenses.” These “funds may come from scholarships,
fellowships, sponsoring agencies, the student’s family, or any dependable
source.” The information you provide in the Affidavit of Support will help us
determine whether or not you are able to provide a student with sufficient
funds. Please fill out the Affidavit as completely as possible.
You must send us:
This Affidavit of Support completed in English. Please complete all
sections, as any incomplete section will only delay approval and
acceptance of the prospective student.
A letter from your bank indicating:
--the approximate amount of money deposited during the past year
(in U S dollars)
--the present balance (in U S dollars)
--your standing as an account holder
If you feel the bank letter does not give enough information to reflect
accurately your ability to sponsor the student, you may also submit additional
supporting documents such as your most recent income tax return, a letter
from your employer, etc. All supporting documents must be originals or
certified copies. Documents that are not in English must be accompanied by
