I-134 Wet Signature Required in Costa Rica?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the embassy in Costa Rica requires a "wet signature" on the I-134 Affidavit of Support (i.e. original copy signed by me, the sponsor) or if they accept a scanned document? I'm working to send it now but the beneficiary lives in a particularly rural area where mail is dodgy and I'm not certain it will get to him!

Is there an equivalent of a UPS/FedEx store or PO Box you could mail things to and have him pick it up there?


As far as I know, there's no clear guidance on whether a scanned an emailed I-134 is okay, so it's probably best to send a print copy if it's at all practical.

technically scanned copies are accepted but some consulates seem to still want a wet signature. mail it to her or take it on your next visit to be on the safe side.
