In-person interviews are required for many companies, and are normally regarded as the final stage of recruitment before a company decides to hire a candidate and send them an informal or formal job offer.
Send this email as soon as your company has decided that the candidate is a favorable one for the position, after all previous assessments and interviews have taken place.
Make sure to include the position they have applied for, the name and position of the person they will have an interview with, and a few different time and day options (make sure to consider their time zone).
Please keep in mind that this is a template. You may change it to suit your company's voice and tone.
