Writing a “Leave of absence letter for visa”

When you are writing a leave of absence letter for visa reasons, you will need to consider a few factors.

  • You will first need to mention that you are planning to take a leave of absence and state the start data and end date of your leave period
  • You can then mention the reason for your leave of absence, in this case due to visa issues
  • Finally, you can provide your contact details to your employer in case they need to contact you for any emergency reasons

Sample 1:


Mr. Principal,

Chieftain International

United State of America

Subject: Requesting leave due to the process of visa completion

Respected Sir,

It is to state with due reverence and honor that I am in my final year in this valued institution. I had gotten news of my mother’s illness yesterday night and I am very worried due to this. I want to fly to her as soon as possible, but for that I had to get my visa for Canada and the visa completion requires a full day. Kindly grant me the leave of one day and please retake the test in the next month on any of the scheduled days suggested by the administration as I cannot sit the examinations right now. Thank you and I’m looking forward to your kind action.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Losin,

20th November, 2022

Sample 2:


Mr. Manager,

Procter & Gamble,


Subject: Requesting leave due to the visa completion process by the employee

Respected Sir,

It is to state with due respect and honor that a wedding in my family is coming in the next month and my inclusion is compulsory in the event. I had applied for the visa for fifteen days, but there was some problem in my details so they called me in their office by tomorrow for proper investigation and filling up of the visa card. The visa completion process takes a complete day and for that purpose I need a one day leave from the office. Kindly sanction me for the leave. Thank you and I’m looking forward to a generous and prompt action.

Yours Truly,

Mr. Pocher

Sample 3:

Respected Sir,

With high esteem and regard, it is to describe that I cannot come to office tomorrow dated 29th March 2022 due to the visa process. I am going to perform the religious obligation called “Umrah” which is performed by Muslims all over the world and my visa is in process for that. They sometimes call you out of the blue to get some information on and off. I got the call yesterday that I have a short interview on the visa evaluation. I need to submit some documents also. It is my kind request that I will be back to work as soon as I am done with the work.

Yours Faithful,
