How to help someone from Turkey obtain a 3 week tourist visa to visit the UK with a letter of invitation

I am inviting a friend from Turkey to visit me in Scotland this August/September and would like to know how to improve the chance of the visa being accepted.

The main sticking point is likely to be her own funds for the trip, which are not high (I believe around 400GBP – hopefully a bit more). However, it is a short trip (3 weeks) and I make clear in the letter that I am happy to meet any costs of the trip beyond her ability to pay.

My friend will have just graduated with a degree in industrial engineering. I hope that this might help to assuage fears that she has any other intention than tourism. Someone with a good STEM degree in Turkey has better career prospects that someone in the UK who is not allowed to be here.

Here is the invitation letter as it currently stands:

enter image description here

She spent a year in Spain on the Erasmus programme, and spent the Christmas period in France and Holland, which I hope might help, as it demonstrates some travel history.

Does it help or hinder the application for me to offer to pay flights & insurance? (as I will) I have read that this is looked upon unfavourably. But if I leave it out, her own finances look even weaker.

How much of a long shot is this?

Are we being naive to even try to apply when she herself doesn’t have great financial means? If the application is rejected, it could prejudice future applications to visit, which might be made when she is in a better financial situation.

If it is likely to fail, I would rather advise that she leave it for now. On the other hand, I feel the request is a reasonable one – and I don’t think she should be put off if it has a chance of succeeding.

She has suggested I should go to the council so that it can be sent via them to the consulate in Istanbul. But I am not sure that’s how things are done here. Shouldn’t I just send directly to the consulate?

What evidence do I need to supply to demonstrate my financial situation? A bank statement and, say, most recent contract of my ltd company? (I am a contractor so don’t have an employment contract). Should these be sent along with the letter?

I take it from Gayot Fow’s response to My girlfriend was a refused a visa to visit me in the UK. What now? that my role in her application is just to establish my ability and willingness to fully sponsor her. I think this part should be straightforward.

How much would seeking legal advice make a difference – and roughly how much might this cost?

There are several questions above but they come down to: how much can I do to help her application?

Thanks for reading.

Australian visa for conference – invitation letter

I’m an Indian national who will be visiting Australia for a week to attend a conference. I am currently a graduate student in the UK. The conference organizers asked me what they should supply for the visa application.

As far as I understand, the visa category I should be applying for is Under documents, it is quite vague and states that I need

  • an invitation from a host organisation
  • conference registration details
  • a letter from your employer stating why you are visiting
  • your plans for your stay and details of your Australian business contacts
  • proof of your current employment and professional qualifications
  • evidence your company is an active business, such as an annual report
  • evidence of prior contact with Australian businesses

Are there specific details that the conference hosts should include in my letter of invitation?

Token-based group invitation link

I’ve searched this site and the web for an answer to this question, but haven’t found what I’m looking for, so here goes. Pointers to existing relevant answers are much welcome as well.

I’m building a web app where users can be in private groups. In order to join these groups, existing members can send to-be members a link to the group with a token in it. I’m wondering what precautions I should take regarding this token, so random people can’t guess it and join a group. I’m currently generating a 256 bit random number (from a cryptographically secure random number generator) associated with the group that is then serialized to a string and sent as part of the URL (using HTTPS of course).

My question is, would I gain anything by hashing this token using e.g. bcrypt, and comparing the hash server-side in the group join operation? Would the answer to this change if I add a time-based component, so invitations are only valid for a certain time interval?

HomeKit invitation stuck

To give some background, I have my HomeKit setup and working perfectly. I’ve successfully been able to add the majority of the rest of my family with the exception of one person.

With this person, I am able to send the invite in the usual way and they receive it, however, the problem comes when they try to accept it. After clicking Accept, my device shows that they are now part of the Home where it used to say Pending. The problem, though, is that this member of my family never gets past the accept stage – they cannot access the HomeKit setup like we can. Instead, the are left stuck on this screen with the spinning wheel for a seemingly infinite amount of time:

enter image description here

After trying the obvious things like removing them, re-inviting them and logging out and back into their iCloud account I became frustrated and did some googling. It seems that this is (or used to be) a common issue as you can see here. The thing I noticed, however, is that all the instances I could find of this problem occurred mid-2018 when I know there were problems with that version of iOS regarding HomeKit. As a result, I made sure to check that all of this family member’s devices were on the most current version of iOS – which they were, (12.2) and thus I became stuck and unaware what else to do.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing this issue and what can be done to resolve it?

Thank you in advance for any help

Business Invitation Date only 8 days before Visa Submission

I have an interview invitation in one of the companies in Sweden, however, the visa submission is just 8 days before the invitation date. And based on the visa website, it takes around 15 days for result of the visa application. Thus the invitation date might pass before I get the visa result. Will my visa be denied? Do I need to update the invitation dates and the insurance coverage? The company however can change the dates, but I have already submitted the application.
