Visa Employment Application Letter to a Foreign Country

One of the documents you need to prepare if you are exploring opportunities to work in a foreign country is to write a visa application. This is the proper way of asking permission to work and earn in a foreign country. In some countries, you have to formally request for a working visa. You have to prepare as well for the necessary requirements and supporting documents plus a polished visa application letter.

Your visa application letter must not contain unnecessary information. It must be straight forward, courteous and simple. It must be in a professional tone. Make sure that you keep your sentences short and simple. You may include as well some of your outstanding work achievements or what makes you suitable for the position. Keep in mind that you have to use positive language in your letter.

To avoid mistakes, you have to review your letter. Double check the details and information that you have indicated in your letter. Check if you have grammatical, typographical and spelling lapses. You have to show that you have a good command of the English language through your writing. Use words that are easily understandable by anyone and don’t show off how wide your vocabulary knowledge.

There are cases that if you took your internship in a foreign country, and they are planning to absorb you as a full time employee, they can arrange the visa for you.

Re: Application for temporary work visa

Dear Sir/Ma’am:

I would like to apply for a temporary work visa. I have a two-year job offer from The Washington Hotel in Gaborone, Botswana. I am planning to join the company as Marketing Manager this coming January 2011. The Washington Hotel found my educational background and experience suitable for the said position.

I can guarantee that I shall respect and follow the conditions that apply to temporary working residents.

I hope that you will grant me a work visa.

Thank you.
