Recommended Posts

I work in a small company that does have any letterheads. Can the owner write on plain paper that i have been working since x , my salary is y, and i have a permanent position? And sign at bottom for affidavit of support,  along with paystubs?

An employment letter is an example of the type of evidence you can supply but is not a requirement.  In the two previous affidavits I have submitted,  never sent in such evidence

The employment and income evidence that I submitted for the co-sponsor were basically just a letter on a sheet of paper with a logo in grayscale at the top, and printouts of my co-sponsor's paycheck information from their internal payroll system (with the pages URLs and elements of web page interface clearly visible). My husband's employers just signed letters that we typed up and printed out - no logos or anything. We had no problems with any of that.


My employer has sponsored a couple of work/transfer visas, including mine, and the letterhead is just a logo, or sometimes there's not even a logo, just the name of the company. I don't think they had any issues.

A letter written in formal business letter format should suffice, though a "letterhead" is certainly easy to make in word as well.
