Re: Asking Permission for Leave

Dear Sir/Madam,

This letter is a formal request for one week’s leave from [DATE] to [DATE]. I will be back at work on [DATE]. My wife and I are planning leave for the first time in five years.

All of the projects that I am working on will be completed before the leaving date. I have asked other members of my team to make sure that all of my responsibilities are covered while I’m away, and they have agreed. My team leader has agreed with my leave request. I have enclosed a letter from her.

If you have any questions or considerations, I can be reached at [555-123-4567] or a [name@email.com]. While on leave, I will be checking my email every day, so I can be reached if it is urgently needed.

Thank you for considering my request. Please let me know if my leave request has been approved at your earliest convenience, so I can finalize our flight and hotel bookings.
