Signature on the forms

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

To everyone looking to start a visa case, and especially for those in the middle of processing a case.

Please don't overlook the need to place a nice-looking signature and date on all the forms you turn in, and especially if the signature is not yours. Here's why.

We had a situation that the joint sponsor of our IR-1 case signed his Affadavit of Support form, but the first part of the signature looked overwritten (like maybe his pen ran out and he wrote over the first part to get to the rest of the signature.). The National Visa Center didn't say anything about it, but when the case got to the Embassy, they asked my husband to have the joint sponsor sign the form again (with a clearer signature). He signed the form but forgot to put the date there. We turned in the signature, and they didn't accept it because it didn't have the date. Uggh! So, we have been waiting for the new signature page to arrive in the mail (another two weeks of time lost...) to turn into the Embassy.

Remember the forms are legally binding in their area, and a good looking signature is important to the Embassy to avoid fraud issues. And don't forget to put the date!!
