Hello Visa Journey Family, quick question. My husband has his interview at the Embassy in Kingston, Jamaica coming up. On the checklist it says "affidavit of support" but I already sent the original to the National Visa Center. Should I just have him bring a copy with my signature since the original was already submitted?

I sent one with my husband along with copies of everything anyway because someone else said the co had asked for it, even tho it wasn't required. Do what you feel is necessary so as not to give them any reason for delay.

I'm leaving no room for any delays that's why I'm checking in. Did you send your husband an original signed copy or just a regular copy?

If it's on the checklist then send it.

If any information on the other form has changed, bring an amended form to the interview reflecting the changes. Otherwise, it's not needed.

What I am asking is do I have to give my husband an ORIGINAL signed affidavit of support.

Short answer: No

Long answer: No unless the information on the one previously sent has fundamentally changed.

The copy should be the same as the original unless any information has changed, correct? As I said I sent a copy of the original signed. They didn't ask for it but someone else reported that they did ask them for it even though it was in the packet from NVC. And I remember them also saying the CO seemed surprised that they had it. That's why I said do what you feel is necessary to eliminate any unnecessary delays.

The information in the DOS website has changed. The interview checklist has also changed as it now specifically asks for a signed original I-864

https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/immigrate/immigrant-process/interview/prepare/interview-preparation-required-documents.html

It states: Family-based visa applications:

An originally signed (in ink) Affidavit of Support from your petitioner and any additional financial sponsors who submitted a Form I-864 on behalf of your visa application. This is required even if you sent an originally signed form to NVC.

Please remember that policies change and if your letter specifically says bring one, which I'm hearing it says now then bring it. Let them be the one to not ask for it if they so choose.
