I-134 and Statement from Employer

Country: Japan

Hi. I received the NOA2 letter and am preparing to mail my fiancee the things that are needed for the interview. I read on this site that I need to mail the I-134 because it needs a "wet" signature.


Does the statement from my employer that goes along with the I-134 need a "wet" signature as well, or should I send a copy of that?


Also, can I use the same employer statement a few months later when we apply for AOS, or do I need to ask my employer for another one at that time?

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Russia

It's not 100% clear if scanned, signed, and emailed I-134s are okay, though many people have had no problems with them. Check with recent applicants through your embassy/consulate.


It's certainly okay send the supporting documentation electronically; the I-134 is the only thing your fiancée needs from you that has to be signed.


It's probably best to get a new statement; it will have been several months between your initial statement and filing for AOS even in the best case (going by VJ averages, it's 53 days from NOA2 to embassy/consulate, on average 42 days to interview in Japan, and then your fiancée needs to get her passport back with her visa in it, get ready to leave and leave, then you need to actually get married and even if you do that shortly after she arrives it can take a few weeks to get your marriage certificate before you can apply for AOS; at any rate, it was about 5 months from I-129F NOA2 to I-485 NOA1 for us). So a lot could have happened in that time.
