Sample Letter of Request for a Copy of an Official Document

There could be several reasons for which a copy of an official document may be requested for. Broadly speaking, it could be needed for either personal or official purposes.

Personal: A person may have lost an important document which has allotted by some statutory authority or organisations viz. educational institutions, previous employer, government offices, etc.

Sample Letter of Request for a Copy of an Official DocumentOfficial: An officer of an organisation may request an officer of another organisation to provide a copy of the official document which was either corresponded earlier between them or which is an important piece of document needed by them for some official purposes.

The format of letter would be almost same in both cases. Important thing is to mention the required information about that document completely so that the person who is going to track it or provide a copy of it - should not face any trouble locating it because of any confusion.

A template of such letter is given below as an example case. Modify it as may be required.

    For a student like me writing simple letters also becomes very tough. Thanks for the sample. I'm learning slowly one by one.
