I-134 Support Evidence Questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Japan

I am completing an I-134 for a fiancee visa and am in the process of obtaining the required support information. I have a letter from my employer stating my salary, length, and permanency of employment. The salary exceeds the required poverty level. Is this alone enough support evidence? If the employer letter is not enough information I can provide copies of my latest federal tax return. Does this mean I can send in a copy of the 1040, attachments, and W2 forms I have completed? If not sufficient, what is required? In addition to the federal tax return and employer letter should I also supply monthly bank statements which are mailed to me on company letterhead each month? This will provide proof of my present balances? As I have funds in multiple online banks it will be difficult to obtain signed statements from an officer of each. Will the monthly bank statements on company letterhead be sufficient evidence? Thanks!

Usually it's recommended to bring in tax transcripts as evidence.. That should be about it, maybe a few paycheck stubs as well.. It's more of in case that particular officer wants to dig into the info you provide..

Good luck! :thumbs:

Your spot on. To be safe, provide more than the minimum. You dont need to send tax transcripts, you can send copies of your tax returns, just make sure you include all forms and schedules and the w2's.

You dont need a letter from the bank either. Statements should be fine.

This is based on my experience and the consulate in Vietnam. You may want to get specific on Japan and what they "expect" to see. Some consulates do vary.

With my I134 I took, Letter of Employment, most recent 2 yr tax return (including all schedules and w2's), most recent 6 months of back statements, most recent 6 months of pay stubs. I took originals and copies of all (but I was there for the interview).
