    Dear John,
    I have got an intimation from the head office in the United States, to come and work for six months. There are a few challenges that need to be addressed regarding the current project.

    There is a really fascinating and critical problem head office is facing, regarding one of the projects handled in clients premise. Due to security concerns, the work cannot be done outside the client’s premises, and they are finding it difficult to find experts on the subject. This is a six months task and I have to leave after one month. I have started knowledge transfer of my current project with Mr Jack. He is really catching up with the project, but his lack of experience and the complexity of the task may become overwhelming for him. I would like you to arrange Miss Lekshmi, associate architect to provide necessary support whenever need arise.

    I am confident, the project will move smoothly in my abscence with said arrangement. Please do conatct me, if you have any concerns.

    yours sincerely,
    Jose

    Dear Ashok,

    I am writing this letter to seek your permission to work in our Santa Clara head office starting this Mar’22 for six months.

    As you are aware I am involved with the ABC project since 3 weeks now and facing issues in getting the first hand information on the project details from our client who is in direct contact with our HO. The project timeline will be greatly influenced once I start working from there.

    Since I will be accessing the common servers, there should not be any issues with my deliverables and other projects that I am involved with. I should also be able to manage the meeting from US during early hours to match the timings in India.

    Kindly, approve my request and help me in arranging the invitation letter so that I shall take the visa process to the next level.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Omer Sharieff

    Dear Jim Brown,

    Hope you are doing well. I am writing to express my profound interest in helping and coordinating with my team in London.

    Recently, I have been promoted to the role of Line Producer for the show ” The Enchanted”. This project is being carried out by our London team which is now headed by me. I believe meeting the artists on the floor and interacting with them on a daily basis will help me better coordinate the project. It will also help me understand the Pros and Cons of the shots. I can get in sync with the requirements of the team thereby convey it to the client.

    On my absence here , my day to day duties will be taken over by Ms. Priya, Project Coordinator.

    It would be of great help if you could accept my request and help me in making the necessary arrangements.

    I look forward for a positive response.

    Thanking you,

    Yours faithfully,

    Sriranjani,

    Line Producer.

    Dear Ramesh,

    I’m writing this letter with regard to my strong aspiration to work for our company’s main branch in USA for 6 months to understand the main branch operations.

    I have been working here for almost a year and I suppose that still I’m not aware of our product completely. So, I strongly believe that spending at least 6 months in our head office will give insights of our product end to end. For, example I can engage with other team leaders and their project activities and I can also see how they have set up their infrastructure.

    When I will be on onsite, I will completely manage my work by working extra hours and following up with my team members in our branch by conducting the daily zoom sessions to understand the progress and stay up to date with our team work.

    I am entitled to request you that please talk to our head office managers on the same and kindly provide the visa and other required documentation to complete this process.

    I look forward to hearing from you and hope that you kindly accept my request and provide the opportunity to work in head office.

    your sincerely,

    Sudhakar

    Hello Mr. Scott,

    I am writing to express my interest in the company headquarters operating in Perth, Western Australia to provide support and training for employees on how to use the software which we recently built for them.

    As you know, we recently completed a big project for client Titan inc, and as per the agreement we have a maintenance, training and support contract which is going to start from 1st April 2022, as client workplace is nearby our headquarters, so I’m pretty sure that this will be a great opportunity for me to get exposure to overseas clients, and clients will be happy if they get local support.

    During my absence, Sumit is taking over my tasks and I had been arranging a few sessions with him for knowledge sharing with all the duties handled by me. Nevertheless, he showed me a demonstration of what I have taught him throughout that session and I am confident that he will be able to handle my duties.

    Finally, I would need your support to get approval so that I can work in our company’s head office for six months and fulfill the objectives.

    Yours sincerely,

    Dheeraj

    Dear Mr. Singh

    I am an employee working as an Assistant manager in the hospitality department of your company. This letter is to request you to allow me to work in the Head Office, London for half a year.

    Let me explain the reason of this choice, I feel that being employed here since 4 years have been a great time but there are few areas where I need to put on more efforts. And I believe staying at the headquarters would give me enough of exposure to explore my skills in a better way.

    I ensure you that all the assigned tasks would be accomplished before I leave. Also I would like to suggest my friend’s name to work on my position who could handle my job tasks very well. I would always be a phone call away in case of any need.

    My humble request is to you to help me with a recommendation letter which could pave my way for this journey of 6 months. I would be highly grateful if my stay could also be arranged in the company’s campus.

    I hope my request would be accepted.

    Yours sincerely

    Dear Joseph,

    I am writing this letter to let you know that I would be working from the head office situated in Toronto for a period of six months in order to complete the project assignment within the stipulated time.

    Hope you are aware that I am closely working with our client in gathering the requirements for the current assignment. In addition, I would need to design the prototype as per the business expectations. And this would require multiple discussions with the customer in achieving the end goal of the product.

    Furthermore, we need to organize repeated demos in knowing the current status of the product for which we need to interact with the customer team multiple times during US hours. However, since we cannot afford to have our entire team to be available during late night hours. I would be available during onsite hours from our head office as I have been involved in this project during the initial discussions. Also, I will ensure to be in the client office which is situated near our head office and can provide presentations based on customer availability.

    I hope you can understand the situation and would anticipate your help in expediting my travel arrangements and getting the needful approvals from our management team.

    Thanking you for your assistance in advance, I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours sincerely,

    Krithiga

    Dear John,

    I am writing this letter to seek your permission for working at company’s South Africa branch starting July 2022 for six months.

    On 10th of June 2022, a meeting was held for migrating users from one vendor system to another. Because of the constant interaction with the final users and helping them settle with the new software, and difference in time zones, engaging with the users is counter productive. Due to my knowledge of the process and expertise in handling the systems, my presence over there will not only be helpful for the team but, for the end consumers as well.

    During my absence, I would not like to keep my spot vacant and hinder the current processes. Therefore, I have trained Michael to be my backup and he will perform tasks that fall under my umbrella.

    As my direct supervisor, your approval is utmost important to commence the travel process. I would like to request you to please approve the request and make the travel arrangements so that the team over there can share the load of work with me for a successful transition.

    I look forward to receiving your response.

    Dear Mr Smith,

    I am writing to bring to your attention that I would be continuing the office work for the short duration of 6-months from the Washington Head office.

    As you might be aware that I have enrolled in the master’s degree course in the evening classes of Washington University, so in the last semester I must appear for seminar and practical classes. The Semester will start on 1-July and Ends on 31-December.

    Since the classes would be in the evening, I would continue to work from head office in the general shift. The on-going projects and meeting would be intact because I would be present online over the head office network. The evening’s customers weekly meeting would be taken care by Greg and weekly reports will delivered as per schedule.

    I would be grateful if you would inform the administration department of head office for the seat allocation and for the necessary access I require while in the office premises.

    Yours Sincerely

    I am seeking for your help for secondment to head office in Texas USA for 6 months due to my personal and professional reason.

    My husband got project in Texas from his company for couple of months and so he has to move to USA. I want to join him as our head office is also in USA for some time so that I can get exposure for working in different country.

    Moreover there is vacancy in head office for our product as recently Sebastian has resigned the company and someone has to take knowledge transfer from him. Additionally we have to support the customers who are in Eastern Daylight Timings so it will be really helpful for the employees who are in Asia pacific zone as they don’t have to be awake for the trainings and escalations and I can handle the situation.

    Finally, I am looking for your support for the approval so that I can work in company’s head office to fulfill both the objective.

      I am writing this letter to request your approval for working from the head office for six months.

      I am working on critical requirements from the client which requires close interaction with them on daily basis to have fair understanding and come up with intricate design. If I engage in conversations with them in person, I will be able to collaborate with them more. Furthermore, it helps me in getting global exposure and getting to know the custom of their country as well.

      Even though there is a difference in time zone, I can do my work remotely and share the daily progress on email.

In addition to being connected using chat applications, I can also interact with the team on a need basis in order to have any in-depth conversation through zoom or cisco applications.

    Dear Prashant,

    I am writing this letter to express my interest in working at our company headquarters located in Germany for a period of 6 months.

    As you are aware we have started working on developing a software solution for an aircraft model at our Bangalore offshore center. I would like to travel to our company headquarters and work there to acquire detailed knowledge about the product for which we develop engineering solutions in Germany. This is essential to bridge the gap between our engineering and software team’s understanding.

    In my absence, I would like Mr. Ramesh to take over my work in supporting the software team as a Lead. I have made him aware of all responsibilities of the role, so we can continue with the development during my absence.

    I request you to provide your approval as I feel this plan would really help us to get the product developed as per the client’s expectations and also it would be a great help if you could get the travel and accommodation approvals from the travel team.

    Hoping for a positive response.

    Yours Sincerely

    Balaram
