Hey, I'm an Israeli citizen and my fiance is a US citizen who born and lived in Israel.

We both live and work in Israel, so as far as I have understood, she cannot be my sponsor.

Her brother lives at the United Stats, his salary is about 21k a year, Will it be enough to be my co-sponsor?

Thank you !

Here is information you can check out, from the Jerusalem Consulate General:

https://jru.usconsulate.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/

https://jru.usconsulate.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/fiancee-visa/

Check this link for information on sponsor income guidelines: https://www.uscis.gov/i-864p . Since your brother-in-law will have to count himself as well as you and your fiance, you'll have to find another co-sponsor, because that makes a household size of 3, and as you see, that's not enough.

I was living in Japan and I was still able to be the sponsor for my husband. I used my savings as proof of being able to support him.

Use this chat as a guide.

If you sponsor someone, you need to have a yearly salary of 125% the poverty line.

If you are using savings, you would need to triple that amount. SO a family of 2 would need just over 60,000 dollars

No, with that level of income he does not qualify to be a sponsor.

If the members of the household add up to 3(you, your partner, and her brother), then he would need a salary of 26,000 a year

Are you sure that my fiance brother needs to support her ? She is a U.S citizen and can work for herselef.. Why does she need to be sponsored?

Also.. About the saving , does it have to be an american bank account ? Or could it be israeli or japanese like in your case.

Thank you!

Since she does not currently have an income, she has to prove that either she can find support herself(by having a job in america, having enough savings, or finding someone to support her) and you as well.

The savings does not have to be in an american bank account. In my case, both my I used both American and Japanese bank accounts.

Does the Uscis state this information somewhere? If so, could you help me find that? I find it really odd that she need to have a sponsor..

Thanks a lot!

You will find no such information as the USC needing sponsorship/support is incorrect misinformation.

If the co-sponsor is single with no dependents, then they need enough for a household of 2: co-sponsor plus foreign fiance(e). The co-sponsor does not include the USC petitioner unless they claim them as a dependent on their taxes. A USC has no need for/does not apply for a visa to enter the US, and therefore they do not require sponsorship for one.

$21k is enough for a household size of 2. > https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-864p.pdf

Thanks!

This PDF relate to i-864.

The console in Jerusalem have noted on their site that they do not accept this one, they only accept the i-134 affidavit of support.. Is there a different chart of salasry for the i-134?

Thanks again !

Are you sure? I sponsored my own husband, so that made a family of two. But if there was a co-sponcer as well I thought that the co-sponcer(as well as anyone else in the co-sponsors household) would be included in the count as well. So one single family person who decided to be a co-sponcer, would be responsible for this couple making them into a family of 3.
