For Citizens and Permanent Residents
Request for Invitation Letter
(Please note that this invitation letter is a personal letter from the student and no status verification from Office of International Education is needed.)

Note: Visa applicants must qualify on the basis of the applicant's residence and ties abroad, rather than assurances from U.S. family and friends. A letter of invitation or Affidavit of Support is not needed to apply for a nonimmigrant tourist visa. If you do choose to bring a letter of invitation or Affidavit of Support to your interview, please remember that it is not one of the factors that we use in determining whether to issue or deny a nonimmigrant tourist visa.
Please check for more information.
