my immediate younger brother has an invitation to the UK from the church :) . But how does he need to go about the Visa application process. He already has a permanent resident in Italy and he lives in Italy. What kind and tier of Visa should he apply for and what documents does he need to provide.

Which church? In what role does it want to sponsor your brother? For how long? What is the basis of his permanent residence in Italy?
