How to Write an Invitation Letter for UK Visa for Parents

Please find below another sample invitation letter for UK visa for parents. This letter is also called a sponsorship letter for UK Visa. Whether you are writing a sponsorship or invitation letter for a friend or parents, the format is the same. All you need to adjust is the names of your guest and their relationship. Remember that the visa officer is mostly interested in verifying that your guests actually have contacts in the UK and that the guests plan to return to their country after their visit to the UK.

You may choose to address your letter to your guests or to the visa officer. In both cases, you need to insert all the necessary information in a clear and easily accessible manner. In my letters, I prefer to list this information at the bottom of the letter.

Below is a sample invitation letter. The names on it are fictitious but this format has been used and visas have been issued using this format. There are other formats that can be used. The most important thing is for the information required to be on it.

Remember that this is just a sample and we are not in any way connected to the British High Commission.
