Iíve got a friend whoís just decided to come and visit, he asked if we were around next week and then just booked his ticket with out talking to usÖ he didnít know however, that he needed a visa :)

OK I need recommendations for an online invitation service and then an agency in London that he can courier his passport to get the visa in his passport and get his passport back that, or at the latest, the next day.

I know there was loads of recommendations posted before but Iíve searched and since the site problems theyíve all gone :(

Anyone?

Boscoe, the best I can offer (but it is going to cost your friend) is get all the invitations etc from
http://www.visahouse.com/ who will email (scanned so they have the signatures and seals), or courier, the appropriate documents and then they submit all the documents to
