Letter From Employer for K1 Interview

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My employer gives a pre-made/canned/general PDF that I can download at any time with information about my position, start time, salary, etc. However it's not signed by any human, it just says "XXXXXX HR Department". Will this be enough for letter from employer, or should I get it signed by my manager, or do I need to locate one of the elusive HR folks to sign it?

The other option that my employer gives for verification of employment is an online service, for which the 3rd party (or me) would have to pay $20 just to get that extra-detailed report. However this is also all done online, so I suspect it also does not have any human signatures. This is the provider of the detailed service: https://www.verifyjob.com/

So I guess this is a two-part question:

1) Will a PDF with no signature from my employer be enough?

2) Has anyone had experience using one of these online services (https://www.verifyjob.com/) for employer verification at the Embassy/Consulate?

I never saw this before on the forum. Is this different by consulate?

Well, the letter is not mandatory - not all employers are willing to sign, and they are not required to do so. But it helps because it's proof of current employment. Why not just ask your employer if they'll sign the letter you can print out. If they need a reason, it's for an official agency needing proof of current income/employment.

You can try and ask someone from HR to sign the printed letter for you, explaining it is for the USCIS and immigration purposes. Either way, provide that letter along with recent pay stub(s) to prove your current income.

HR finally responded to me (I sent an email last week), and they will sign it for me no problem. Thanks everyone!

A little off-topic, my paystubs are also all electronic, so will printing out the PDFs be sufficient?

In todays age the only paper things I get in the mail are my W2s. All of my statements, paychecks, and bills electronic.

Yes, that's fine. They know that a lot of companies are providing pay stubs this way. good.gif
