Now let’s get to it.

The financial documents must be of the sponsor’s financial income. If the applicant is working in their country, the Home Office is not really interested to know what they are earning. They just want to know that the sponsor can support the applicant once they are in the UK.

The financial requirement at the moment is 18,600 GBP per annum.
