Ok, I'll try to give enough detail without putting everyone to sleep. I'm really confused here, as I always am with government forms.

My wife is a Permanent Resident from China that came on a CR-1 visa when we were married. She has been living here since May 2009. We are applying for visa's for her sister and mother to come for a visit later this year. I am filling a form I-134 for each of them but I am confused how to answer the following:

9. I have previously submitted an affidavit of support for the following person(s):

a. Should I list my wife, because i filled one for her when she was immigrating? b. On my sister-in-law's, should I list her mother and vice versa?

10.I have submitted a visa......for the following person(s):

I need to list my wife for this one I am pretty sure, right?

Please help if you can. I'm waiting for the day that I can fill out a government form that is easy to read and makes sense.

***** Moving from Bringing Family... to Tourist Visas as op only wants to bring the in-laws for a visit *****

They need to qualify on their own for touristy visas, you cannot sponsor them. If you want to, write a letter of invitation saying you'll pay for their upkeep and a few touristy things you plan on doing, but really it is up to them to show ties to China in order to get the visas.

Do you expect the Consulate/Embassy to ask for the I-134 ?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

For tourist visa most countries require DS-160 I dont think you are filling correct form.

They will have to show they have enough funds and they have strong ties to china and they willretur to china after the visit and not over stay their visa.

If your sis-in-law is single and between 16-28 very difficult to get the visa for her.

The interviewing VO may or may not ask for an I-134 during the interview - it seems to be an increasing trend though in China to ask for one, especially if the visa applicant is retired. The VO who conducted my in-laws B-2 interview did ask to see an I-134 from either me or my wife and luckily I had filled one out and they had it. The VO did not actually keep the I-134 though - she just looked it over and then returned it to my in-laws after saying that their visas were approved. For my in-laws I-134 , I only filled out one form for the both of them (listed both their names on it) and only listed my wife on the part where it asks if I had previously submitted an affidavit of support for someone else.

Out of curiosity; where did they interview?

They interviewed in Guangzhou. They were originally thinking of interviewing in Shanghai but ended up choosing to interview in GUZ instead because of a shorter wait for an interview - my wife was able to get an interview scheduled for them in GUZ after only a 3 week wait.

If I could ask a follow-up question about this -- did you get your I-134 notarized or affirmed? I'm trying to figure out how to do this in a very limited time frame. TODAY!!

Thanks in advance for any help.

The current version of the I-134 has no notarial requirement.

Please check the form you are trying to fill out, review any fine print along the edges.
