Information from CIC:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/letter.asp

Sometimes a person applying for a Temporary Resident Visa to visit Canada is asked to provide a letter of invitation from someone in Canada. The following information will help you prepare such a letter to send to a relative or friend abroad.

A letter of invitation does not guarantee that a visa will be issued. Visa officers assess the applicant to determine whether they meet the requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

Note
The following information is only a guide. You must write the letter of invitation yourself. Some visa offices may require that your letter be notarized by a Notary Public. Check with the visa office that is processing the application to find out if you need to do this.

By writing a letter of invitation, you are not legally responsible for the visitor once they get to Canada, but you should provide the letter in good faith. You must give truthful information and intend to keep the promises you made in the letter.

Send your letter (notarized if necessary) to the person you are inviting to Canada. They must then submit this letter to the Canadian Embassy or Consulate outside of Canada when they apply for their Temporary Resident Visa.

Your letter must include the following information about the person being invited:

* Complete name.
* Date of birth.
* The person's address and telephone number.
* Your relationship to the person being invited.
* The purpose of the trip.
* How long the person you are inviting intends to stay in Canada.
* Details on accommodation and living expenses.
* The date the person you are inviting intends to leave Canada.

Your letter must also include the following information about yourself:

* Complete name.
* Date of birth.
* Address and telephone number in Canada.
* Occupation.
* Whether you are a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident
* A photocopy of a document proving your status in Canada. For instance, a Canadian birth certificate if you were born in Canada or a Canadian citizenship card if you are a naturalized citizen. If you are Permanent Resident, you must send proof of your permanent resident status (a copy of your PR card or your IMM 1000 proof of landing).

INVITATION LETTER

November 10, 2010

To: Citizenship and Immigration Canada

I, Mary Brown, born on January 1, 1977, resident of 423 Park Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, am a citizen of Canada. I hereby, would like to verify my purpose to invite Mr. John Abraham to visit me in Canada for a little period of time starting on June 15, 2011 and ending on September 5, 2011.

I am requesting to consider Mr. John Abraham application for a visitor’s visa for the following reasons.

Mr. John Abraham is a citizen of the U.S. and he resides in his personal condo apartment at 34 John St. in New York (please find evidence of the possession enclosed). He is presently studying at the New York College of Information Technology where he is at his second year of studies at the IT security Professionals Program (proof of his studies is enclosed). In addition, he is presently employed part-time as a Computer Operator with New York Presbyterian Hospital. John’s family which consists of her parents and 3 younger siblings lives close in the same neighborhood John lives in.

John and I are engaged and have been in a connection since the winter of 2009. I travel to the America as a minimum once in 2 months to use up quality time with my fiancé. In addition, for the last two years we have spend our vacations jointly and travelled to Brazil in the autumn of 2008, to the Dominican Republic in the spring of 2009, to Alaska in the summer of 2009 and so on.

We have discussed our viewpoint on wedding ceremony and determined on having a wedding ceremony in Toronto in the month of August. I am thus respectfully requesting that you permit John to come to Canada for a time of less than 3 months so that we might be married in Canada. John's relatives in the US have it in mind to join us for the wedding. All of my friends and family members in Canada are also keen to attend our wedding and share this instant with us.

John needs to be here with me in Canada before the wedding as we desire to make wedding arrangements jointly. We plan to have a ritual in the month of August as John intends to go back to the US to continue his studies and resume her employment.

During his stay in Canada, John will live with me in my condo apartment, which I have possession of and where I live by myself (proof of the possession is enclosed). I vow to provide lodging, board and to pay for all expenses incurred regarding John’s visit to Canada and I vow to be legally responsible for him.

I hold enough funds to bear all the expenses mentioned in this. I have been working at Toronto Family Clinic as a Registered Nurse with the annual salary of $50,000 (enclosed please find the evidence of same). I also hold quite a few accounts with the Toronto Dominion Bank (evidence enclosed). I undertake to make sure that John will not remain in Canada further than the period allowed for her stay and that he will return to the US as stated by the conditions of his visitor’s visa.

Taking into consideration the previous, I am requesting you to kindly grant a visitor’s visa to John Abraham. Should you need any further information, please feel free to contact me.



Best regards,



(Signed)
Mary Brown

I don't think it is a requirement for any country. I do think that they look at it and see that the person who is willing to go to the extra lengths by doing it is responsible thus might get a better review. But, that is just my opinion.

EDIT*

Take a look here:

Someone dealing with Mexico VO might be able to help more then me.

Take Care

MadeInCanada, do you know if the "Mary Brown" letter was actually succesful as a letter. Trying to invite my fiancee for a visit, and would hate to hinder my chances by saying too much up front. Do you know if that letter was successful?
