This question already has an answer here:
My boyfriend is inviting me to visit him in the UK. He's originally from our country and migrated there almost 20 years ago. He's now a citizen. He will pay for my roundtrip tickets, accommodation and I will only pay for the visa application here.
We have already completed all the requirements we think we need. I have my passport, certificate of employment, bank statements, payslip etc. He also gave everything above to me already EXCEPT for his bank statements. He said it would not be required on his end. I know he earns a lot there according to his payslips and P60, but I really do think that his bank statements are required. What do you think? Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
