It is not easy to go to another country to do business, especially if you have not received a formal invitation from the person with whom you will be doing business. And if you have been asked to write an invitation letter, you should keep reading this.
Invitation letters to obtain UK business visas are not difficult to write. You do need to know who to address the letter to, and what format to base your letter on, but then you can pretty much write it your way. The content of the invitation letter should contain why you want a particular person to come to your country, how long he or she will stay, and what possible future liaison can be made between yourself, and the person you are inviting over. Make sure that you specify who will be handling the expenses of the person that you are inviting so that the visa officer does not dwell on the fact that the invitee will become a burden on the state.
Here is a sample invitation letter for a business visa for the United Kingdom:
