I am applying for a K-1 visa for my fiance abroad. Can a faxed or scanned/e-mailed copy of the fiance intent letter and G-325 form be submitted with the application, or do they need to be the original signatures?

Also, how strict are they about the signatures?

thank you

They can be strict on the G-325A, however in our case letter of intent was fine as a photo-graph emailed to me from my wife.

It's SUPPOSED to be original. People have gotten RFE's for sending originals that didn't look good enough like originals which is why I signed everything in blue.

I did my K1 in 2009 so still relatively recently. I assume it's still the same as the instructions still say "original signatures"

It's supposed to be original signatures.

I've seen some people get RFEs for it and some people not get RFEs for it. It's a risk I wouldn't take, personally.

Leter of intent should be original signature. G-325a does not have to be signed at all. See below.

Re: Guidance for Processing Pending Form I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) when

G-325A for Petitioner and/or Beneficiary is not Signed and/or Photos not Submitted.

Purpose

To provide field offices with guidance on processing Form I-129F petitions when the accompanying G-325A is missing signatures and/or photographs.

A properly executed Form G-325A is required for all I-129F petitions. Previously it was standard practice to issue an RFE when the beneficiary failed to sign the G-325A and/or failed to submit photographs. From the date of this memorandum, an RFE should not be issued in instances where the beneficiary failed to sign the G-325A and/or failed to include photographs provided that the beneficiary is residing abroad. The beneficiary will be required to sign the Form G-325A and/or submit photographs at the time of visa issuance abroad. It is also not necessary to RFE for the petitioner’s signature on the G-325A, if the petitioner failed to sign it. The signature of the petitioner on the Form I-129F should be deemed sufficient for purposes of adjudicating the petition. Finally, it is important to note that the petitioner’s photograph is still required for the adjudication of the I-129F, so if it is missing, it must be requested prior to adjudication.

Questions regarding this memorandum may be directed through appropriate channels to Mica Pilz of Service Center Operations.

The letter of intent needs to be signed. As stated, some people on this forum have been given RFE for not having it signed. Better to be prudent, then not and have to worry about getting an RFE for something as small as a signature. It's not a big deal, but some people don't want to have those extra days affect their timeline.
