The ISSO can provide letters of invitation for students who wish to invite foreign national family members to visit the U.S. for visits of 3 months or less. This letter can be presented at the U.S. Embassy in support of the family member's request for a B-2 visitor (tourist) visa. Our office will prepare such letters for immediate family members only.
Please also note that if you are requesting a letter stating that invitee will attend commencement, it must be your final semester. If you need a letter earlier for your family to apply for their visa, you can request a generic invitation letter.
You will receive an email within 3 to 5 business days to notify you when to pick up the letter.
