Invitation letter

My parents and sisters got their tourist visas this week so they can come visit us anytime they want :) The visas are valid for just one year but hey, something is something! and now they can come this year to visit us :D

So you can have some idea of what you need to do, my sisters are legally adult and students dependant of my parents, so they can't use the same form or the same payment but they can have the same file in the embassy.

At the end they had to fill a form for my parents and one for each sister. The payment was a check for my parents and a check for each sister again. They went last week with the max payment for a family and a form for the 4 of them, and that was wrong, but the girl that was at the embassy was pretty good and help them fill the forms for my sisters and let my dad go to the bank to get the 2 other checks and get back to the embassy.

You need to take to the embassy everything that can prove that you want to go back to your country, including the last 3 bank statements, but be carefull to take the latest statements, since my parents were going the last week of march and the latest stament was from february but at the end they went the first week of april so they had to run to the bank to get march's statement.

I also sent a copy of my latest work payment, a copy of my resident card and this letter of invitation:

Heyyy there! I am also a fellow Venezuelan who's about to send an invitation letter to her dad and sister to come visit! I don't know how I got to your post, and I noticed it was posted a long time ago, things have changed and have heard many venezuelans get denied!! I really hope my Dad and sister do well and btw, the Canadian Consulate in ccs closed and applications are now submitted to Mexico. What do u know about this??
