How To Write A Cover Letter For Student Visa Application [See Sample]

Applying for Student visa is one thing, for the officer processing your Student visa application at the consulate getting in your data is another thing. If there are certain data that needs clear explanation, it will be better you do a brief explanation in your cover letter.

Your cover letter for visa application also gives the whole idea on your application even before the officer or consul goes through your document. This will make their work easier as they already have idea of what they are going to see as attached to the form filled unlike when they expect that a document should have been attached but could not see and guessing you omitted it.

Your cover letter for student visa application also makes your application more professional and this is what many consuls prefer. It shows you know what you want and really are serious about the application. Some people go the extent of hiring a lawyer to help them write such cover letter.

Here below is how to write a good cover letter for visa application with a good sample

How To Write A Cover Letter For Student Visa Application

For a start, your address comes first and it is very crucial. Ensure your address tally with the one you used in the application form.

Next is the date. There are different date formats you can apply. I will advise you use the format the country use in the form.

Then comes the addressee. This is as well crucial. Ensure you are right in the consulate address. Mistake here can render your efforts meaningless. You can check this out on the internet which is now made easy with your search engine.

After this, is the salutation. The consul is the representative of the country you are applying to in your own country. He determines whether you are worthy to enter his or her country or not. Although I always advocate for the first name of the supposed recipient, in this case, it might not work since the consul is in the office for a while and before your letter gets there, he or she might have just been changed. All I will just advice is to ascertain whether the consul is a she a he.

The heading of your letter is the next. State it boldly on the letter before you continue with the letter e.g. Application for Schengen Visa.

The body of the letter is where you state who you are and your purpose of the application. You are to state your attached documents and other things necessary.

Conclude by thanking consul and state your hope or confidence as the case may be that you will be granted the visa.

Your signature is essential after you have written your name.
