International Student and Scholar Services
Invitation Letter Request
If your family plan to come to Saint Louis either just for a visit or for your graduation ceremony, they may need to obtain a tourist visa (B-2) in order to enter the United States. Though letters of support are not necessary when applying for B-2 visas, some people find them helpful.
If you would like the Office of International Student and Scholar Services to write a letter of support for your family, please fill out the form below. You should also view the information about applying for a B-2 visa (Word, PDF) if you have not already done so.
This service is intended for and only open to current students and scholars at the University of Missouri - St. Louis.
Please note: we cannot write the letter of status if any of the following points apply to you:
1) You have a hold on your student account
2) You are currently not enrolled as full-time student (unless our office has given you written authorization to drop below full-time status)
3) You have ever failed to complete a full-time load of courses in any previous semester (this includes delayed (DL), excused (EX), and withdrawn (Y) grades, none of which count towards full-time enrollment)
All fields are required.
