Do I absolutely need a hotel reservation to get into the UK?
Hello, I am in the US and trying to plan a Christmas visit to the UK to visit a friend who needs some support as there has been a tragedy in his family. We have met in person, he was here from Sept. 8th to Sept. 24th visiting me. If I have a return ticket and evidence of funds and everything, can I still get entry clearance if I'm going to stay with him and his family?

make sure you carry a letter from him with his address. if it were me i would make a hotel reservation. it all depends on your age. if you are over 35 i doubt you will be hassled. If you are in your 20s I guarantee you will be hassled... More

Not sure but would not hurt to get a written invite from your friend with an address. Better still, you could check the brittish embassy. Good luck!!

No you don't need a hotel reservation. Before I moved to the UK I always stayed with friends here when visiting. You just need to put your address in the UK on your landing card, so use your friend's address. If they ask where you are staying, just say you are visiting a friend over Xmas
