An invitation letter, written and signed by an American, is a valuable supporting document for a visa application to the USA. This letter of invitation should be brought to the USA Embassy for the visa interview. A free sample letter is available for download.
When Do You Need an Invitation Letter to the USA?
An invitation letter to the USA is most commonly used for a visa interview. It can also be beneficial when applying for ESTA, especially if you’re concerned about being denied entry into the country.
The letter can be written by anyone, but is most often penned by the individual inviting you to the USA. In this letter, they’ll explain their reasons for inviting you and describe their relationship with you. If applicable, it may also include a commitment that the author will be responsible for your financial expenses while in the country.
An integral part of the letter is the contact details of the person extending the invitation to the USA.
