Different countries have different requirements when it comes to Letters of Invitation (LOIs). So while you need an LOI for one country, you may not need one for another. The only exceptions are the countries where absolutely all applicants require LOIs. Such countries, as Russia, Turkmenistan and Iran for instance, have very strict immigration rules and require everyone to have an LOI either approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of that country or issued by a company registered with the MFA.

When you select a country on our website and input your nationality you will be provided more details on each visa. This information will also include LOIs requirements if any.

If you do need an LOI we will be able to help you and obtain one for you in majority of cases.
