Letter of Invitation: What to Do
Invitations are always welcome. With invitations, you can get into special events, parties…and countries?
Yes, when you apply for a super visa, you are required to have a letter of invitation, among other special documents. In this blog, we’ll talk about what you need to include when creating a letter of invitation for your parent or grandparent to come to Canada in order to make your application a success.
For the applicant, you will need their complete name, their date of birth, address, phone number, relationship to the host (you will need to provide separate proof of that relationship later), the purpose of the visit to Canada, how long the parent or grandparent intends to stay, where the visitor will stay, how their finances will be taken care of and when the visitor will be departing.
The host will need to list their complete name, date of birth, address, telephone number, job title, their current Canadian status (citizen or permanent resident; you will need to provide proof of status as well), family details (dates of birth, names, how many are in your household).
The host will also need to include a promise of financial support for the visitor as well as provide proof of a minimum income. The CIC’s website, again, can provide further information as to what threshold you need to meet.
Let’s put all this together as a brief example before we wrap up today:
As per our conversations regarding your visit, I [as a Canadian citizen/permanent resident], am now writing you a formal invitation letter to visit me in [location] for [period of time]. You are invited to stay with me at my house at [your address]. Please make a copy of this letter for your records and include the following documents: [list documents here].
After this, you can include details of the trip and include a nice sign off. Again, this is just an example, but make sure you include everything I listed above.
