Writing Country in Foreign Language on I-130

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Country: Israel



I am completing item 58f in Part 4 of the I-130.


The instructions state to write the beneficiary's name and foreign address in their native language. My husband is from Israel where the language is Hebrew. Fields 57a - 58e allowed me to type in Hebrew, so I did.


However, field 58f which asks for the country to be written in Hebrew is giving me an error when I try to type in Hebrew. It only allows English.


I left it blank, printed it out, and wrote in the space as follows to kill two birds with one stone:

ישראל     (Israel)      


Israel in Hebrew on the left and Israel in English in parantheses on the right. Is this ok? I was unsure if they really wanted the foreign language there since the electronic form only allows alpha characters. Should I only write ישראל or only write Israel?


Thank you for your help.

Print (Hand-write) with black ink in the native language.  It's perfectly ok to type some, and hand-write others.
