- U.S. Embassy or Consulate: www.usembassy.gov
According to the U.S. Department of State, invitation letters submitted as part of the visitor visa process are not reviewed and therefore unnecessary. As a result, the Office for International Students and Scholars does not issue invitation letters for students’ family members and friends.
