        Hi Adenike,

        Don’t worry too much about the content of the letter. Just follow the example above and adjust as needed. The invitation letter is just a required formality. No one I know has been refused a visa because an invitation letter was not properly written.

    This was indeed helpful, thanks! But someone mentioned it will be addressed to the embassy. Should it? And one more thing, do I mail it or send through courier services?

      Hi Danny,

      Send the invitation letter to your friend. They will take it to the Nigerian Embassy in their country to apply for a visa.
