Sub: Issuance of visitor's visa to my parents

Dear Sir/Madam,

I, Rahul Gupta, work as a Software Developer at AT&T Inc. located at Piscataway, NJ and earn $60,000 per year. I would like to invite my parents, Mr. Ram Gupta and Mrs. Sita Gupta, to visit the USA for tourism purposes and to meet me. They will be staying with me at my home at the above-mentioned address for 6 months.

During their stay in the United States, I will bear all responsibilities including, but not limited to, financial responsibilities, return air ticket fare to travel from INDIA to the USA and back, travel expenses within the USA, medical insurance, housing and food. I will personally make sure that they leave United States before the expiration of their authorized stay. I will also personally make sure that they will not become a public charge on the part of United States government.

So I respectfully request you to grant my parents a visitors' visa.

Thanking you,


Yours Sincerely,



Rahul Gupta
