United States Consulate General
Address of the Consulate

Dear Honorable Consul,

SAM SUNDAY- PASSPORT NO AO234567 AND JUNE SUNDAY – PASSPORT NO – A02343377

My name is David Sunday, and I reside at 4532 68th Street, New York, NY 12546. I am a United States citizen (or lawful permanent resident alien).

I am requesting that you issue a tourist (B-2) visa to my parents Mr Sam Sunday and Mrs June Sunday, in order to allow them to visit with me in the United States. I have not seen my parents in the last 4 years and I would like her to visit, this summer.

Mr and Mrs Sunday will be visiting with me from June 1st 2010 to June 30th 2010. This will be a great time because I will be off work at this time. During their stay in the United States, they will stay with me at my home at the address stated above.

I will be responsible for all of their accommodation expenses while they are in the United States. Upon the termination of their visit, I will personally ensure that they return to Accra, Ghana.

My Parents will be presenting this letter to you, together with other evidence to establish their close ties with Ghana, and to assure you that they will return prior to the expiration of their stay in the United States.

Your kind consideration to this request will be greatly appreciated.

Yours Truly,

David Sunday

Invitation Letter to Parents (Addressed to them)

In most cases, the above letter is sufficient. However, some people prefer to write a second letter that is addressed to the Parents. In my experience any one of these letter is good enough. However if you want to be double sure, you can send both letters.
