Ecrire une lettre d’invitation pour le visa Canadien

For those who prefer the letter in French! Here is a sample invitation letter in French!

 

Une lettre d’invitation est d’habitude nécessaire si vous allez visiter un ami ou un membre de la famille. Tout ce que vous avez besoin de faire est de demander à votre ami de vous envoyer une lettre d’invitation. Envoyez-les toutes les informations vous concernant et laissez-les écrire la lettre. Je vous propose de leur demander de vous envoyer la lettre par voie postale, ensuite, vous pourrez placer celle-ci dans une enveloppe pré-timbrée dans votre paquet d’application.  L’enveloppe pré-timbrée est importante car cela montre une forme d’authenticité. Cependant, avant d’envoyer la lettre, demander à votre ami de scanner la lettre signée et de vous envoyer une copie par courriel. Vous utiliserez cette copie si vous ne recevez pas le courrier à temps. Mes amis et ma famille ont utilisé la lettre scannée plusieurs fois et cela a bien fonctionné. Toutefois, je vous propose d’utiliser la copie originale.

Quand j’ai écrit ma première invitation il y a quelques années, je n’avais pas d’idée à propos de ce qu’elle devrait contenir. Donc, j’ai été sur le site de l’Immigration Canada et j’ai trouvé un guide. Vous pouvez trouver le guide ici – Guide pour lettre d’invitation pour l’immigration au Canada.

Voici ce que devrait contenir la lettre d’invitation. Cette liste est adressée à la personne qui écrit la lettre. Envoyez-leur simplement un lien à cette page pour un bon fonctionnement.

Votre lettre devrait inclure les informations suivantes à propos de la personne étant invitée :

  • Nom complet.
  • Date de naissance.
  • L’adresse et le numéro de téléphone.
  • Votre lien de parenté.
  • La raison du voyage.
  • Combien de temps la personne que vous invitez à l’intention de rester.
  • Les détails sur le logement et les dépenses.
  • La date à laquelle votre invité(e) compte quitter le Canada.

 

Votre lettre devrait aussi inclure les informations suivantes à propos de la personne qui écrit la lettre:

  • Nom complet.
  • Date de naissance.
  • L’adresse et le numéro de téléphone au Canada.
  • Son emploi / sa profession.
  • Votre citoyenneté ou votre résidence permanente.
  • Une photocopie de document prouvant votre statut au Canada. Par exemple, un certificat de naissance canadien si vous êtes né au Canada ou une carte de citoyenneté canadienne si vous naturalisé citoyen canadien. Si vous êtes un résident permanent, vous devez envoyer une preuve de votre statut de résidence permanente ( une copie de votre RP ou votre preuve IMM 1000 d’entrée).

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 these information at the bottom of the letter.

Sample invitation letter for Australia Visa – Spouse or Partner

How to Write a Visa Invitation Letter for Australia Tourist (Subclass 600) Visa (Spouse or Partner)

A long distance love relationship can be quite stressful on its own without the dilema of not knowing how the love of your life will come over to Australia to visit and eventually stay. When it comes to inviting a spouse or partner to visit you in Australia, there are many factors that must be considered.

First you must realize that the visa officer still needs to be convinced that your special friend will return to his or her country of residence until a different visa is obtained. For those whose guest is not yet a spouse this is also very important.

Regardless of who your guest is, the format of the invitation letter is basically the same. You will only need to provide adequate documentation to show that your guest will return to their country of residence once the time of thier visit has expired. So regardless of who the guest is, what is most important is to ensure that all the required information are in the letter. There is no specific method or style once all the required information is visible in the letter. The Australian Consulate or Embassy requires this letter. Please visit the relevant Australian High Commission website for the most current information

Your letter must include the following information about the person being invited:

* Complete name.
* Date of birth.
* The person’s address and telephone number.
* Your relationship to the person being invited.
* The purpose of the trip.
* How long the person you are inviting intends to stay in Australia.
* Details on accommodation and living expenses.
* The date the person you are inviting intends to leave Australia.

Your letter must also include the following information about the person writing the letter:

* Complete name.
* Date of birth.
* Address and telephone number in Australia.
* Occupation in Australia.
* Your status in Australia
* A photocopy of documents proving your status in Australia and financial Status.

Do not forget to send a scanned copy of your passport. You may need to ensure that this document and all other documents you would be submitting are certified true copies. This can usually be done by a notary.

Also note that even if the guest is your spouse and you are not a citizen, the letter will follow the same format and all you need to change are the specifics of the relationship. Partners and spouses are particularly challenging to invites as guests by citizens of Australia because it is difficult to show that your spouse will leave you to return to their country of residence.
