Invitation Letters Not Required for B2 Tourist Visa Applicants
Effective March 2015, International Student and Scholar Services will no longer issue "letters of invitation" based on the U.S. Department of State’s confirmation that “Visa applicants must qualify on the basis of the applicant's residence and ties abroad, rather than assurances from U.S. family and friends. A letter of invitation or Affidavit of Support is not needed to apply for a nonimmigrant tourist visa” (travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/visit/visitor.html).As ISSS has had no reports of visa denials based on the lack of a letter of invitation and given that it is not a required document, we will no longer generate invitation letters.
