Notarized Form I-134 (affidavit of support)

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Thailand

My fiancee has received the VISA processing requirements packet from the US Embassy with the check list of items she needs to submit. One is, of course, the Affidavit of Support (I-134). Does anyone know if it has to be notarized? The USCIS website says this "You must sign Form I-134 in your full name. (Note: Signing Form I-135 is under penalty of perjury under U.S. law). For this reason, it is not necessary to sign Form I-134 before a notary, nor to have your signature notarize after you sign it."

I found this information here:


Since the newest revised copy of the I-134 doesn't have a notary section on Page 2, I'm assuming that a notarized signature may not be needed now. Can anyone confirm this?

I don't think it is required to be notarized any more. See the instructions: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-134instr.pdf
