There are many people who think that when they want to hire a foreign employee with an E-7 visa, they must receive an employment recommendation letter from the central government. no. In most cases, you need to submit a well-written statement of reason for employment.

However, even if the employment recommendation letter is not required, the probability of issuing a visa is much higher if an employment recommendation letter is issued and submitted at the time of visa application. If you do not receive an employment recommendation letter, you can fill out the employment plan and submit it when applying for a visa.
