Do you have a family member or friend that you want to invite to Canada? Do they meet the requirements of a visitor visa? If so, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident can sign a letter of invitation to invite the foreign national to Canada.
Typically the letter mentions the purpose of the visit, the financial means or the visitor and the sponsor, contact information for both parties and a plan of what the visitor will be doing while staying with their sponsor or inviter. We would like to share with you in an exclusive offer our template for an invitation letter which we use for all of our clients' visitor visa applications.
