Question regarding supporting documents for I-134

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Everyone,

 

I am gathering up the last of the supporting documents for my I-134 in hopes that we will eventually be able to get an interview. I asked an officer at my bank for the letter that shows all of my accounts, their dates, balances, and total deposits for the past year. I was told he can get this for me within 1/2 hour (thank you Wells Fargo!). The bank asked "Do the account numbers need to be included in this document?" Any thoughts? I earn much more than the 125% poverty limit, so chances are good that I won't need the bank statements anyways. But I want to be safe.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

No need, since its a bank letter certificate, all they need to show is your name. You dont want that info just flying around for no reason. And good luck on your interview, i remember you having issues with the wrong embassy and not

Thanks Alabamak1. I told my bank to leave off the account numbers.

 

Yes, the NVC sent our petition to the wrong country. But that turned out to be the least of our problems. We got the petition transferred successfully to Nicaragua within 2 weeks. But the whole country is on the verge of civil war. Much violence, looting, and burning. The embassy is largely shut down. We are unable to get an interview scheduled, because they won't make any appointments available. The country has become very dangerous, and my fiancée is afraid for her life.

 

We are going to request another transfer to Panama, hopefully they will take our case. We have heard rumors that other people from Nicaragua have done this. Any thoughts on who I need to contact to accomplish this feat? I am guessing I need to contact the American embassy in Panama to request a transfer, and beg them to accept our case.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Dang, really sorry for you prolonged wait....and now another transfer and russian roulette game at sending the paperwork. Hope you get it done. I can say even though it's been tough, at least my wife is here now and the wait is not such a problem. We just got email notification from our AOS packet.

I am currently in the process of transferring our case to Panama. It is currently being reviewed. The only negative is that we will have to re-pay and re-fill out the DS 160. When I talked to an officer in Panama, she had also told me that I will most likely have to make another doctors appointment in Panama even though he has already seen a Nicaraguan doctor. She said that she was not sure about this, but that we would receive all necessary information once our case has been successfully transferred.

 

Also, the process of transferring so far has been quite easy. All I had to do is contact Panama requesting permission, which I did over the phone. They said that I just needed to send a letter to both embassies 1) explaining the reason for transfer 2) case number 3) copy of applicant's passport. I typed the letter, printed it, signed it, scanned it, and sent is as a PDF. The applicant should sign it. In my case, I am currently in Nicaragua with my fiancee so we both signed it. But they had told me that in this case, the interview is for the applicant, not the beneficiary. Therefore, just have her print and sign it.
