Bank statements in support of I-134 (Brazil)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My son is preparing the I-134 for his fiancée in Brazil. He is having difficulty with the "statement from an officer of the bank" regarding funds - although he can provide detailed statements for as long as they want - he has banked with the same bank for 7 years. Thing is, it's an online bank so they won't provide a written statement which is what appears is required according to the instructions.

Any ideas or will the actual physical account statements suffice?

Thanks!

Haven't tried but can certainly see about it. Trouble is, these online banks, whilst fabulous as a bank, doesn't really have Account Managers the same way as a physical bank - just customer service reps. Shall see and report back. I'm sure this must have arisen many times before!

If your son meets the income qualification requirements of the I-134 then this is not necessary. I submitted a letter from my employer, pay stubs, and an official IRS tax transcript as my support for the I-134 and had no issues. Not all of the documentation listed is required. The applicant only needs to provide sufficient proof that they can support their household and will not become a burden to the government. The only time that these banking documents and bank officer statements would be required is if his account balances were part of this proof.
