If you are inviting guests from overseas and require a guest invitation letter for visa purposes, please either call in at The Hub, based at the Richmond Building, or send a request via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will need to tell us how many guests you would like to invite. For each guest, you will need to provide their full name, date of birth, passport number and how long they will be staying in the UK.
If you are applying for a 'Shengen Visa' - a supporting letter can be obtained from The Hub, located in the Richmond Building.
You will need to provide the details of your travel arrangements (the destination, date of travel and approximate duration of travel) upon request of a letter.
