My employer has asked me to travel to the U.S. on my B-1 visa to meet with a client. The client has provided me with an invitation letter. Is it necessary to get the letter notarized?


Ordinarily, there is no requirement that an invitation letter be presented at all when requesting admission on a B-1 visa. However, they can be useful to present as evidence of the purpose of one’s visit. If such a letter is presented, there normally is no need to first get it notarized. (06.Mar.2024)
