It is an authentic document used as verification proof in the visa approval process. 

This letter is submitted to the embassy alongside other documents when you attend the visa interview with the Consular Officer.

Writing a sponsorship letter is not an easy task. Since it is an official letter, you might face pressure while writing it.
