Invitation letter sample for friends or family to visit the UK, for UK Visa applications

Updated on August 5, 2010

If you live in the UK and want people who live in other countries to visit you, you may be asked by the UK visa authority ( British High Commission or Embassy) of that country to provide an invitation letter from you before they can issue a visa for visit to the UK. Below is an invitation letter sample that you can modify to fit your needs and requirements. The Home Office or overseas office may ask for specific details so make sure that you include those details in the letter. This is just an example template that you can modify to use. Remember to put your address and also provide contact details so that they can contact you if they need to.

Dear Sir or Madam,

To Whom It May Concern:

Re: Application for UK visitor Visa for Jonathan Doro; Date of Birth; Nationality

I am writing to confirm that I wish to invite Jonathan Doro to visit me in the UK for 4 weeks in order to attend my university graduation ceremony and also stay afterwards for a short holiday. The date of my graduation is 12 July 2009 and I hope you will allow him to come before then so that he can attend my graduation. After graduation, I would like him to stay for a brief 3-week holiday with my family.

I have been studying at the First Class Degrees University where I recently completed a degree course and have leave to remain in the UK indefinitely.

I am able to accommodate him for the whole duration of his stay in the UK and I will also pay for his living expenses. Please find attached evidence of my accommodation and also evidence of my financial status which shows that I am able to meet Jonathan Doro living costs during the time he will be staying with us.

I have enclosed the following documents for your consideration as required:

- Copy of passport and the page with UK Visa
- Mortgage Documents as proof of accommodation
- 6 months bank statements
- Certificate of student status and letter from the University confirming graduation date

Should you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact me on +44 111 111111.

Your faithfully,


Juik Beo

      GUY WITH COMMON SENSE 6 years ago

      what is wrong with you people?!?! this is just a sample invitation letter. No one can send you an invitation letter unless they know you very well and prove that they can accommodate your stay. So, unless you have relatives/friends/family don't even think that a stranger is just going to send you an invitation letter.
