Sample Letter of Invitation for US Visa

Many people wish to visit the USA not only because it is a wonderful country to see but also because they have their loved ones settled there. However, obtaining visas to visit the USA might be difficult. What can make things easier is an invitation letter from your friend or relative living in the USA; a letter of this sort can make things much smoother than they would ordinarily be as it will help people in authority make decisions in your favor.

A letter of invitation of serves one very important purpose – providing embassies with information on why a certain individual wants to enter the US and put their minds at ease about any illegal activity or asylum issues. Since the reputation of the issuer of the invitation letter is on the line here, people take care not to provide misleading information which works well for embassies.

So do not hesitate and write a letter to the embassy in the country your friend/relative is residing in by simply stating all the facts of why your friend wants to visit you.
