i have been in contact with lady in IRKUTSK.she would like to come to UK for holiday..just a bit worried..you hear all these stories..she has asked for 318 USDOLLARS for flight to Moscow..337 USD for flight to UK...120 USD for registration of passport..198-330 USD for visa (depends on stay)..DO THESE PRICES SEEM ABOUT RIGHT....
who cares? Have you met her yet? Probably not, otherwise you'd know the price of tickets.
By all means your prerogative to send her money, all being monies you could transfer direct to her travel-agent (not accessible for her) also, but if you're going to see her remains the question.
I'd suggest to start doing some homework, but for someone you've only been 'in contact' with - don't send a dime cash (she asked for WU?).
You go to her first pal, nothing else. For instance, you're sure she's a woman?
Don't laugh now....
Nevets, have you spoke with her on teh phone? Also, do some homework on teh 'net, check her city for travel agents, and do not be afraid to contact them with questions either. Is it that easy to get a tourist visa to UK? Also check that too.
if you do it, buy all tickets for her through the travel agent. not refundable. anyway she may never shows up. I think it is still difficult to get visa to Uk for Russian single girls anyway. she should start from getting visa first. meet her first in Moscow.
