Invitation Letter Request

Please be advised:

Invitation Letters are not consistently recognized by U.S immigration issuance officers in other countries.

However ISS offers currently enrolled OSU students a choice of invitation letters to invite their family/friends to the U.S.A

Two types of Invitation Letters are :- 

1 - General Unofficial Invitation Letter - If you are not graduating this semester, you may draft your own general unofficial invitation letter. We have provided instructions and an example in the link below. These will not be on OSU letterhead nor have any university stamp nor signature. 

a) Recommended Instructions

b) Sample Letter

2. Graduation Invitation Letter for immediate family - If you are graduating this semester you may obtain a graduation invitation letter signed and stamped by ISS office after your upcoming graduation has been verified. Verification can be done in one of two ways

          a) Request to have ISS check the graduation list for that respective semester (8th week of the semester), or

          b) Undergraduate Students: Please visit https://portal.okstate.edu/web/oklahoma-state-university and then navigate to [Self Service->Students->Student Records-Apply to Graduate] to apply for graduation.

NOTE -Graduation Invitation letters are for IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS (limit 5). Every student will be provided with a Single Letter. If you need separate letters you are more than welcome to make copies of the original issued letter.

* The Citizenship and Immigration Service (CIS) is proposing a change in the regulations for B2 visa holders. The B2 nonimmigrant visitor may stay in the United States for a maximum of 6 months. The burden of requesting for a length of stay as a B2 will be the responsibility of the visitor upon entry into the US. At the port of entry, the CIS officer will assign a 30-day limit unless evidence of the need for additional stay in the US is presented. It is important that your family members have an invitation letter and a specific schedule of their travel.
