Immigration Reference Letter

By | December 8, 2014

An immigration reference letter is written to attest the credibility of an immigrant by an acquaintance or a known person. If you are going to write one for your friend or acquaintance, then you have to introduce yourself first and then state your relationship with the immigrant. Then you have to proceed with relevant information about the immigrant like his or her profession, duration of stay in the country and character traits appropriate to the situation. Given below is a sample immigration reference letter written for a friend.

Sample Immigration Reference Letter:

The Immigration Department head,

Subject: Immigration reference letter for Ms. Sally Simpson

Dear Sir,

My name is Jane Clarks. I am working as HR executive at ABC consulting and I am based in 104 Thomaston Road, Preston CT 06365. I am writing this on behalf of Ms. Sally Simpson, whom I have known for the past seven months, in order to attest her need for UK citizenship.

I have met Ms. Simpson when she reached here seven months ago, at our neighborhood and befriended her. She had come here to join her spouse who is working here. Since her visa status prevents her from working here, she couldn’t do a job here and her spouse’s income is not sufficient for both of them to live a decent life. As per my understanding it is necessary for her to get a permanent visa so that she can do a full time job and support her family.

She has come across as an efficient, hardworking and reliable person who can be an asset to any organization and can thus contribute to our nation.

Thank you for your time and if you need any further information you can reach me at phone 07 988 655 333 or email at

Yours Sincerely




Jane Clarks
