Every year many international students graduate from US universities. Many of them would love to invite their parents and other relatives or friends to the United State, to be part of their graduation ceremony. In this post I outline how to write a graduation invitation letter for visa. You can use this format to invite your parents, your spouse, your siblings or even your friends. Simply update the relationship and adjust any of the letters below to suit your specific situation. Other invitation letters for US visa are also available.


Find below a sample invitation letter written by a student of New Jersey City University to invite his parents to attend his graduation ceremony. Take note that the letter is addressed to the Consular Officer but the letter should be SENT TO YOUR PARENTS.

My parents will stay with me during their visit, (and may visit a few other U.S. cities before returning home. It would be greatly appreciated if you could grant them a visitor visa so that they may join me to celebrate my graduation.
