Interview in Kuwait- Petitioner unemployed

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The embassy in Kuwait has our application and we are ready to have the interview. However, my USC is currently unemployed; she just lost her job in October. Having a cosponsor is not an option for us so its something we're not considering. 

 

Would we need for her to wait to get a new job, and hence be able to present paystub+employment letter, or can we go ahead and attend the interview just by using her recent tax returns and bank statement? The tax returns alone will demonstrate that she's lived well above the povery line. 

 

I asked this question a couple of times in the regular forum, but I was advised to ask it here in the regional section. So hopefully someone with more knowledge on specific requirements for the embassy in Kuwait can advise.

 

Thank you for your time in advance.

regardless of consulate, she will have to prove current and ongoing income for the i 134. You would want at least a few months worth of paystubs.

 

only a handful of consulates dont seem to care, london being one i believe, but it is an anomaly and not the norm.

until she has a steady job making enough or co sponsor, there will be no visa.

Her current income is $0 at this time since she is unemployed. This will not be sufficient for a visa unless they either don't ask for the I-134 (only a small handful of consulates don't ask for one) or she has sufficient assets that can be shown.

London allows you to self sponsor btw
