Updates to Forms I-864, I-864A, I-864EZ and I-864W

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today, USCIS published updates to the following forms:

Each updated form is a new edition dated 07/02/15. (Starting 09/06/15, USCIS will only accept the 07/02/15 edition. Until then, you can use the 03/22/13 edition.) The edition date can be found at the bottom of the page on the Form and Instructions.

In addition, we have updated the corresponding I-864 Form and Barcode Requirements.

For more, see our Forms Updates page.

:goofy: They updated their announcement :goofy:

****Correction: In an email issued earlier today, we stated that starting 09/06/15, USCIS will only accept the 07/02/15 editions, and until that date, we would continue to accept the 03/22/13 editions of the forms listed above. In fact, we will continue to accept the 03/22/13 editions until 10/05/15. Starting 10/06/15, USCIS will only accept the 07/02/15 editions.

The edition date can be found at the bottom of the page on the Form and Instructions.

I just mailed in our package to the NVC with the older form this morning. Will we have to submit the newer form for the interview?

Finally starting to feel like this process is moving right along. I have a question, my info has been scanned into the system @ NVC as of today. So, from looking at other peoples Timelines, would it be a rough estimate to say I could expect my interview in approx. 3 months from now? I was hoping it would be before the snow flies....ye gadz, flying in to Montreal in the winter can be bizarre, delays, etc., etc.

Thanks a lot!

My interview is next week in Montreal (Finally!). Apparently I found out I need a copy of I864 along with my husband's tax reports. I have tax paperwork but it seems like no I864. Would we be facing any delays even thought we submitted everything online?

Please help ASAP :)

So I've filled in the i-864 I downloaded from the USCIS site but I don't see a barcode on the bottom . . . am I misunderstanding what this is supposed to be? Or is it because I'm using a mac?

Hello VJ'ers!

I have a question regarding the I-864 Affidavit of support. Ive been reading many posts and information online about this form and that the NVC will require it before sending the packet to the embassy for the interview to be completed. My Fiance and I have done all the steps necessary for the I-29F and have received the letter from the embassy with his interview date! However, I have not received anything from the NVC about completing the I-864, nor was it asked for in the letter from the embassy in Paris. I have downloaded the form and have completed it. I will be meeting my Fiance in Paris for his interview and will of course have all of the documentation we have received thus far. Will the consular officer ask for the form during the interview or will the NVC ask for it at a later time? I'm so confused!!
