Any visit to the United States begins with an official invitation. Even if you just want to visit friends or relatives. Or take a tourist trip. What is the easiest way to get an invitation to the USA?
It is necessary
Sheet of paper, pen, computer, printer, fax, envelope
Ask relatives or friends who live in the United States to write a free-form guest invitation. It can be written by hand or typed on a computer and printed on a printer. Mandatory points of a private invitation: who invites and whom, when and for how long. Names are written in Latin letters, as in a foreign passport, with a date of birth and a passport number. Another necessary clarification is who finances the trip, medical insurance: the Russian citizen himself who is invited to visit, or the representative of the inviting party, who must have legal status in the United States and confirm his income.
Find a sample guest invitation. For example, on travel sites. Change the dates, names and addresses to your own. Then send the prepared invitation to your family or friends who live in the United States. Let the person who invites you add the missing information, print the invitation, personally sign it and send it to you by mail or fax. It is also possible by e-mail, but in this case the signature of the author of the invitation is required. American relatives do not need to certify a private invitation with a notary.

You will be sent an invitation from the host on the company's letterhead with a stamp and the dates of the selected trip.

This amount is then included in the payment for the tour. Only in two cases the amount of the deposit cannot be returned back.
