As a British Citizen or anyone who has an eligible status in the UK, you are entitled to have a guest visit you from different parts of the world. Many students come to the UK to study from all over the world, these students often need to have their parent or other relatives visit them. Find below a sample invitation letter written by a Naturalized British Citizen who wants his father to visit him in the UK. Please take note that you can use the same format to invite a mother, uncle, brother, sister, grand parents. All you have to do is adjust the letter to reflect the different relationship. If your situation is different, simply state your case and let your guest present himself. In some cases you may mention something about your guest but that is not necessary. This letter is just a document that shows that your guest really has a reason to come to the UK. The sample below is just one format for an invitation letter. There are very many other formats. You may choose to write the letter directly to your guest. In both cases however, it is your guest that you send the letter to.
