Why a Business Invitation Letter for Australian Business Visa?
There are a number of reasons why writing invitation letters have become increasingly important – besides stating the purpose and intent of the program/or event for which the invitation was necessary in the first place, it aids the process of obtaining a visa (in the event that attending the function would require one).
While the letter of invitation is not a sufficient guarantee for visa qualification, it does offer documentary evidence supporting the case for visa issuance, thus easing the visa application process.
The ideal invitation letter should state the invitee’s name, title and the business or organization they represent, as well as their relationship with the host and the purpose of the visit.
In the event that the purpose of the visit is in fact for business (as in this case), necessary personal data including the person’s date of birth, country of birth, their gender, marital status as well as their passport number would also be required to be reflected in the letter.
