Engaging a Lawyer to Draft a Letter of Invitation for Family Visiting Canada

Canada is renowned worldwide for its picturesque landscapes, multicultural cities, and welcoming attitude toward visitors. If you’re a resident or citizen and are looking forward to inviting your family to visit, you’ll need to draft a letter of invitation. This document can play a crucial role in your family’s visitor visa application process. For best results, consider hiring a legal professional to help you with this important task. Here’s a guide on how to go about it.

Step 1: Finding a Suitable Lawyer

Look no further – if you are a Filipino in Canada intending to invite your relatives in the Philippines, Northam Law can assist.

Step 2: Understanding the Requirements

The letter should include details like your family members’ names and birthdates, the purpose of the visit, how long the stay will be, where they will stay, and how they will finance their visit. The letter should also include your details as the host, such as your name, your status in Canada, and your address.

Step 3: Drafting the Letter

Your lawyer at Northam Law will help draft a comprehensive letter of invitation that covers all the necessary details.

Step 4: Notarizing the Letter

A letter of invitation for a Canadian visitor visa must be notarized. This means it must be signed in the presence of your lawyer at Northam Law, who then also signs the document, confirming your identity and that you have understood the contents and implications of the document.

Step 5: Sending the Letter

After the letter has been drafted and notarized, you’ll need to send it to your family members in their home country. They will need to include it with their visa application as proof of their ties to Canada and their purpose of visit.

Remember, a letter of invitation does not guarantee visa approval, but it is an essential document that supports the application process. By hiring a lawyer from Northam Law to help you with this process, you’re taking a step toward creating a stronger application for your family’s visitor visa.
