RE: Point of Entry to the United States

Date of Entry: 31st July, 2024


I am writing this letter on behalf of my mother Mrs. Suryalata Nagarjuna, whose passport number is __________, Country: India. I am inviting my mother to stay with me for a period of 6 months.

She would be entering the United States on a B2 visitor visa to spend some time with me and my family here, and to tour some of the places in the United States.

She will be staying with me at my above-mentioned address. Please be advised that my mother's native language is Telugu. She is not fluent in the English language. Hence, this language barrier will be present during the Point of Entry process at the airport and during her travel inside the country.

I work as a Mechanical Engineer on full-time employment basis in ABC Company at 123, Los Angeles, CA 90039. As per company policy, I cannot take extended long leaves for non-medical reasons. Hence, I will be taking short leaves occasionally to accompany my mother to visit different tourist places in the US. Due to her age and language barrier, I have to accompany her on all occasions with time gaps; otherwise, it would become very hectic for her.

Her return airfare ticket has already been booked during the last week of January, 2025. I have also obtained health insurance for her for a period of 6 months.

Therefore, I request you to kindly allow her an entry at the port to the United States, and further grant her a longer stay of 6 months in the United States to allow me the opportunity to get short leaves from my employer to accompany her for different tours and travels. Please find attached a tentative itinerary plan, which outlines her stay, tour destinations and expected tour dates.

Thank you for your valuable time and consideration in this matter. My mother and I are grateful to you for your cooperation.
