**********************************************************************

Letter of Invitation

London

05 Aug, 2007.

Dear British Consulate,

My name is John Smith (DOB 21/10/72). I am a highly motivated student

at the Edgware Academy of Languages and Computer Science in London UK

and have been studying here since September 2003. I’m currently in the

first year of a three year Diploma Course in Business Administration

at certificate level. I have been granted leave to remain in the UK

until August 2010 as a student for completing the course.

I have been on holiday twice in my country during my study,

4 weeks in SEP 2004 and 3 weeks in 2005.

I wish with this letter to invite my wife Mrs. Julia Smith (DOB 29/11/71)

and my son Albert Smith (DOB 01/05/95) to live with me in the UK

during my study. They will stay with me at the two bedroom flat

where I live. My wife will support themselves financially without

recourse to public funds during their stay here.

And, I assure you that they will leave the UK at the end of their

permitted stay in UK. I have been obeying UK Immigration Rules and

completely understand that we MUST obey it.

Finally, I will be very grateful if you could grant a visa to my wife

and a son to come and live with me in the UK.

Thank you in advance.

If you require further information please contact me.

Yours Faithfully

She will transfer a substantial sum of money into my bank account before she arrives in the UK.

I would not specify the sum unless you are asked, in which case you must be honest about the sum.

Good luck!
