The letter is typically written by a host who is a citizen or permanent resident of the country being visited, and it serves as an invitation for the visa applicant to visit the country for a specified period of time.
The invitation letter should include the following information:
- Host’s information: Name, Address, Phone number, and Email address.
- Visa Applicant’s information: Name, Date of Birth, Passport Number, Nationality, and Occupation.
- Purpose of the trip: Sightseeing, visiting friends or relatives, attending an event, etc.
- Dates of the trip: Arrival and departure dates.
- Relationship between the host and the visa applicant: Family member, friend, colleague, etc.
- Details of the stay: Accommodation arrangements, including address and contact information.
- Financial arrangements: Whether the host will be providing financial support, or the visa applicant will be responsible for their own expenses.
