There can be a situation when due to some reasons you should change your residence. In addition, if there is a chance to be transferred to anther branch of your company that can be a better solution than quit a job. The job transfer letter written in a proper way can bring good results. The below given sample can be used for that reason.
London Bank (A branch)
Dear Mr. Smith,
It is already 4 years that I have been working at this branch and I was devoted to our organization during all these years. Next month I am moving with my family to Cambridge since my wife had been offered a job there. This job opportunity is great and she was searching for that for a long time. The company had no any branches in London, therefore our family shuld move to Cambridge. For that reason, I request you to consider my job transfer to the branch in Cambridge. The transfer will be very beneficial for me. I do not want to quit the organization, which I am so loyal with and the work for the Bank in other city can be a solution.
I hope for you understanding. Please, consider my request.
If any employee himself/herself wants to take transfer from one branch to another then he/she write a transfer application letter by the name of his/her senior stating the reason behind taking transfer. While writing this letter take into consideration that you yourself want to take transfer thus the approach should be polite and request to be made to the senior authority.

I share impressive relation with all my colleagues as well as with my senior staff. I am satisfied with the work and work environment which I got here.

As I am getting married to a man who resides at New York since his childhood and also work there in a company named as Franco New York Pvt. Ltd. He cannot leave his job for me as he stays there with his family. I am aware of it that our company owns one of its branch there in New York hence I want to make an application to you that kindly transfer me to that branch. I expect you will understand my situation and response the needful for the same.

A Transfer Letter is the one that is given to an employee when s/he is being transferred to another branch or another department of the same organization. The reasons why this is primarily given to an employee are:
A Transfer Letter is an official letter but the transfer could be on mutually agreed terms between the employee and organization or it could also be only the decision of the organization. Most organizations when they get the acknowledgement of the offer letter from the employee, they also put a clause saying that the employee should be open to the idea of being transferred to any branch or department of the organization whenever needed.
A Transfer Letter should be short and brief. Since it is an internal official letter it need not be very detailed. It should basically give the name of the individual being transferred, the department to/from where s/he is being transferred, the effective date of transfer and the name of the person who s/he will be reporting after the transfer.
