If you want to have friends or family visit you while you are in the U.S., you can write an  invitation letter for them. A common reason for visiting is graduation, but your friends and family are eligible to apply for a U.S. visitor visa anytime.

OIA does not write visitor visa letters for friends and family. Here is a sample invitation letter you can write, sign, and provide to your friend or family. You may also provide your visitor with your transcript or proof of enrollment from the Registrar.

Your friends or family should follow the procedure for the B-1/B-2 visitor vis application at the local U.S. consulate/embassy at which they will apply.
