Work Visa Application Letter

August 3rd, 2010 | Published in Application Letter When looking at promising work prospects in a foreign country, a letter applying for a visa to work in that country is the proper documentation to proceed to earn money legally. While permission to work & earn is built into visas in some countries, in most other countries you have to formally request for a work visa. Have the necessary documents/requirements ready and write a polished letter.

While the application letter need not be embellished and must go straight to the point, it must still be impressive. As much as possible, there shouldnt be any mistakes in the documentation, so proofread your letter for lapses in grammar or errors in spelling and punctuation. Show a good command of English in your writing. Lets say you have a standing job offer in Canada and you have your passport plus a letter from your future employer in the host country ready, the only thing you have to concentrate on next is to write the letter applying for an international work visa. The completed application showing that the requirements of the host countrys regulations are met will speak for itself. In some cases, such as when youve worked out an internship with a company abroad, the company can assist in arranging a work visa for you. Here is a sample letter applying for a visa to work in a foreign country: Sample Application Letter 28 May 2010 THE VISA OFFICER Citizenship and Immigration Canada c/o Embassy of Canada Immigration and Visa Section Level 6, Tower 2, RCBC Plaza 6819 Ayala Avenue Makati City 1200 Philippines Re: Application for temporary work visa Dear Sir/Madam: Greetings! I am applying for a temporary work visa. I have a one-year job offer from The Sutton Place Hotel in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I am planning to join the company as Assistant Front Office Manager. Based on my educational background and experience, The Sutton Place Hotel has found me ideally suited for this position. Rest assured that I shall respect the conditions that apply to temporary working residents. In the meantime, I continue to hope that you will be able to grant me a work visa. Thank you. Sincerely, Judy Cordova

Application for Admission into a University

August 2nd, 2010 | Published in Application Letter Writing an application letter or what some call a Letter of Intent for College or Graduate School is a simple correspondence that delves into personal qualities, accomplishments and other reasons why a person is among those best suited to pursue studies in a particular school. Most schools require an application essay (where the applicant may relate a brief human interest story highlighting his/her strengths, skills, or passion), or a simple letter of intent that also cites the qualities and accomplishments that make the student-applicant a good match for the school applied in. Below is a sample letter of application for admission into a university: Sample Application Letter Penn State University Economics Department Bryn Mawr, PA 20000 Dear Mr. Lee, I am writing this letter to express my interest for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics at The Pennsylvania State University. If I were to choose one word to describe myself, it would have to be independent. At the age of five, my parents divorced, and I was left in the care of my grandparents. It was one of the turning points in my life that hastened my maturation. I learned to think and act independently. All the challenges I experienced strengthened my resolve to improve myself. I consider myself a diligent student and voracious reader. I read news magazines and journals for relevant news updates. I have a strong background in Mathematics and Science, excelling in subjects such as Calculus, Algebra, Probability and Statistics. I believe that Mathematics and other subjects such as Computer Science and Marketing, which also appeal to me, can be useful tools to the modern economist. I look forward to putting various skills to work. I believe that to be an effective economist, one has to cultivate as many skills as possible, including good interpersonal relations and marketing know-how. I acknowledge the fact that most learning takes place outside the classroom. I feel that the practical skills I have gained from extracurricular activities and volunteer work like taking part in the fundraising campaign for victims of the devastating earthquake in Sicuan Province of China may be put to good use. I believe that with the distinguished faculty and state-of-the-art facilities of The Pennsylvania State University, I can fully develop my potentials and chart my chosen career path. I hope you

will take a favorable decision regarding my admission to Economics undergraduate program of Pennsylvania State University.

Not all people are cut out to totally devote themselves in the service of the needy, or to work in a private firm with a social work aspect. My interest in being of service to others through social work was triggered during my younger years.

I look forward to obtaining the distinct advantage of University of Californias well-rounded program and remarkable faculty members.
