Invitation Letter

The Office of International Services at USC does not produce letters of invitation for the purpose of inviting students' family members to visit the United States. -These letters are not required by the United States Consular Offices in order for family members to obtain visitor visas.

As a courtesy to our students, we are providing a letter template for students who wish to write their own letter to invite family members to the United States. -If you choose to write your own letter, it should only serve to invite primary family members- parents, grandparents and siblings. -Again, this letter is not required, and we are providing the template as a courtesy only. -Along with the letter, should you choose to write it, you should include a photocopy of pages 1 and 3 of your most recent I-20.
