A letter of guarantee can be issued for a new project between a principal and beneficiary. After the project has been created, the principal can create a letter of guarantee request for the vendor and submit it to the bank. When the bank receives and approves the request, the letter of guarantee is issued to the beneficiary. For more information, see About letter of guarantee and Activate the letter of guarantee.
