Sample Invitation Letter for Visa to the UAE

How to write an invitation letter for a visa to the UAE (With Free Samples)

When applying for a visitor visa at an Emirati embassy or consulate, the applicant is required to provide a letter known as a Visa Invitation Letter for an Emirati. This letter must be addressed to the Emirati government. Either the applicant or the consular officer needs to be addressed in the letter, and it needs to certify that the applicant will be housed in the home of the host for the entirety of their time spent in the country where the host legally resides. Either the applicant or the consular officer must be the recipient of the letter that is required to be written..

What are the important details which should be in a Visa Invitation Letter?

The visa invitation letter must contain the following information about the host:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • Telephone number
  • Date:
  • Telephone number
  • Occupation
  • Type of home (owned / rent house / flat / room)
  • Host’s residential status in the host country
  • Signature


On the other side, the letter must also include the following information about the guest:


  • Full name as shown on their International
  • Passport
  • Date of birth
  • The person’s address and telephone number
  • Relationship between the host and the guest
  • The purpose of the trip (friendly visit, holiday,
  • wedding, birthday party.)
  • Exact entry date and exit date


If the letter is meant to be addressed to the visitor, avoid making it sound like an official document. It is preferable that it sounds more personal and warmer rather than formal, so that the consular officer can have a better understanding of the relationship that exists between the host and the guest.

The person providing the visa invitation letter must fulfill the following requirements in order for the letter of invitation to be valid:

  • Must be a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United Arab Emirates
  • Must be your family member / relative or friend, boyfriend/girlfriend
  • Must have a registered place (apartment or house) in United Arab Emirates
  • Must have enough room for the applicant or the applicant and his or her family members if the applicant is traveling to United Arab Emirates with his or her family

On some occasions, the Letter of Invitation is not required by the Emirati embassy, but it is strongly recommended to submit one even if not required.
