I-134 Supporting Evidence

I have a question about the evidence needed for the I-134 form. I'm finding it difficult to get a statement from the officer of my bank and would like to know what evidence others have used to with this form.

I do have a letter from my employer, a copy of my bank statements, and my income tax returns from 2009..

Should this be enough evidence for support?

Thanks

An alien applying for SSI must make available to the Social Security Administration documentation concerning his / herincome and resources and those of the sponsor, including information that was provided in support of the corresponding application.

A separate affidavit must be submitted for each person. As the sponsor, you must sign the affidavit in your full, true and correct name and affirm or make it under oath.

As the sponsor, you must show you have sufficient income and/or financial resources to assure that the alien you are sponsoring will not become a public charge while in the United States.

Evidence should consist of copies of any or all of the following documentation listed below that are applicable to your situation.

Failure to provide evidence of sufficient income and/or financial resources may result in the denial of the alien's application for a visa or his or her removal from the United States.

The sponsor must submit in duplicate evidence of income and resources, as appropriate:

A. Statement from an officer of the bank or other financial institutions where you have deposits, identifying the following details regarding your account:

1. Date account opened;

B. Statement of your employer on business stationery,revealing:

1. Date and nature of employment;

C. If self-employed:

2. Report of commercial rating concern.

Welcome to VisaJourney,

Your evidence is sufficient. It would be helpful if you had a couple prior year's tax returns. Since you have copies of your bank statements you should not need any "statement from an officer of the bank"...your bank statements will tell the tale. You do not need ALL of these things...note the words "as appropriate." Others are using the same types of evidence as you are using. Don't worry.

Best Wishes, :thumbs:

Hi Mike - welcome aboard! Sounds like you've got it covered. Below is a list of things I provided for comparison purposes.

We went through the HCMC Consulate in Vietnam.

With my I-134 I provided the following:

1) Letter of Employment stating my position with the company, salary, length of employment, current status of employment (my employer also inculded a little blurb about my value to the company which was very nice).

2) Copy of most recent 2 years tax returns including all schedules and w2's

3) Copy of most recent 6 months of bank statements

4) Copy of most recent 6 months lay stubs

I also took all the originals of these with me when I went to VN (I was there for the interview).

I did not request tax transcripts from the IRS and I did not get a statement from my bank.

This worked fine for us with no questions or problems.

Check out what others who have gone through your applicable consulate have to say, some places "expect" certain things that others may not.
