An invitation is not mandatory for your application. Travelley cannot arrange an invitation for you or anyone. The invitation will be only beneficial for an applicant if the invitation is sent from the applicant’s family members or close friends.

Although visa acceptance or refusal totally depends on the applicant’s profile, applying with family may increase your chances in certain countries.

On the other hand, applying with family for Australia or Canada may decrease your chance of getting the visa.
