US Citizen petitioner/sponsor can get it from USCIS.gov, and can get it notarized at most banks in the USA.


One thing about I-134, the directions included with I-134 are very old, USCIS has no reason to update them since USCIS has no application for that form.

The consulates tend to treat the I-134 like a mini-I-864 as so prefer the same financial evidence as the I-864.

In our case this what the I-134 included.

  • I-134 signed and notarized.

  • SIMPLE Tax transcripts from the IRS for past 3 years, (Redundant for the (1040,W2,1099) but are free from the IRS http://www.irs.gov/faqs/faq1-6.html

  • Photo copy of IRS form 1040, and W2s for past 3 years (Not necessary if you provide the transcripts)

  • Letter from my employer stating annual salary, job responsibility, and that is full time, on company letterhead.

  • Photo copies of past month or so of pay stubs up to a few weeks before the interview.
My income was well above the povertyline so I did not include any asset data (LIKE BANK STATEMENTS or property values).

If your income exceeds 125% or (100% for military) of the povertyline when counting yourself, prospective immigrant and any dependents, then don't bother with assets (401K, Bank balance, Stocks etc..), it is just extra un-needed data to provide, the consular officer is most concerned with INCOME.

You may want to read London's page on this.

To substantiate the information regarding income and resources the sponsor should attached two or more of the following items to the affidavit.
  • notarized copies of his or her latest federal income tax return;

  • a statement from his or her employer showing salary and the length and permanency of employment;

  • a statement from an officer of a bank regarding his or her account, the date the account was opened and the present balance;

  • any other evidence adequate to establish financial ability to carry out his or her undertaking toward the applicant for what might be an indefinite period of time.

NOTE IRS returns no longer need to be notarized, and transcripts can be used in place of the returns. So acording to London you can provide I-134 and TWO of the items in the list, so how about IRS return data, and employer letter, and to add one more thing a few recent pay stubs can be considered as "Any Other Evidence"

Hi, I'm doing the same thing as you are, the I-134, yes you can download this from the VisaFAQ tab on this site. Banks and the BMV have notaries that can notarize documents at a minimal fee.

Best of Luck and God Bless!
