When going for a business trip to the DRC a business cover letter is needed for your visa application. This letter details important information about your business trip to a foreign country, such as travel dates, the purpose of trip, the duration of the trip, etc. The business visa cover letter is written by the company you work for or the company you’ll be representing during your business trip and it is usually submitted with the rest of your documents and application form at your nearest DRC Embassy. Below is a sample letter for DRC business visa application.
Required details for a business visa cover letter
The business visa cover letter is issued and written by your employer and is from the organisation that you work for and will be representing in the DRC. In the letter, the purpose of your trip is stated. It can be that your company sent you there to negotiate business deals on their behalf, create business contacts, broaden business partnerships or attend a conference on behalf of your company. The business visa cover letter includes the following:
- Letterhead of company.
- Travel dates.
- The purpose of the business trip.
- The duration of the trip.
- The company name, as well as your position in the company.
- The visa type you are applying for (Business Visa).
- Contact information of the employer Any other relevant information.
Sometimes the overseas company you’ll be visiting also writes an invitation letter. This is often to invite you to be a speaker in their conference, it can be an invite for just attendance or an invite to discuss business in general. If you receive this letter, it should also be included in your business visa application.
