I'm new to the community, my friend moved to the UK, Leicester city, I want to visit her, as I asked before if I can convince the council that my circumstances in my home country is good the application may be accepted.

Anyway a letter from her may support my application more, I want to know what should this invitation letter form look like, and how can I show it to the council and approve that it's not fake, and legally approved ??

I'd be grateful for any help.

Best Regards.


UKVI approves visa applications, not ‘the council’. The invitation letter from your friend is just a personal letter from them addressed to you; it cannot be ‘legally approved’. It should include the dates during which you are invited to visit, a brief reason for the invitation, and a statement about where you will stay / support being provided by your friend (if relevant). As stated in the answer to your first question Can I get a visitor VISA invitation from a non UK student living in the uk? the invitation letter will carry little weight with UKVI if your own personal circumstances are not strong (eg ties to your home country such as a job, and funds available to you for the visit). Reading UK visa refusal on V 4.2 a + c (and sometimes 'e') may help you prepare your application
