A visa invitation is a letter on your behalf asking the embassy to grant you a visa for a specific purpose. Also, It acts as a guarantee to the consul that the invitee is taking responsibility that you will not illegally stay in any country beyond what is allowed in your visa condition.

Also, the letter must mention who is responsible to handle the expenses whilst you were in the country.
