Form I-134 - Bank Statement/Employer Statement

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it ever too early to request my bank for a financial statement or my employer for a job statement as per Form I-134? I received my NOA2 last week so we're beginning to prepare materials for my fiancee's embassy interview in Guangzhou, China. I meet the financial requirements easily, but I'm afraid the embassy officers could think my financial statements or employer statement may be out of date if I send my fiancee the documents too ahead of time.

 

Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Not sure how it is for your embassy, but many embassies do not look at bank statements in regard to the I-134, same for employer letters unless a person is a new employee.    Most recent tax return/transcript and W-2  they do want.

The instructions for Form I-134 indicate that I need to include a bank statement (date account opened, total amount deposited for the past year, etc.) as supporting evidence. Or is this dependent on the embassy?

It is a type of suggested evidence,  no where does it say required

Yes I am aware of what the instructions for the I-134 state, I was just sharing that most embassies don't ask for all those documents.   There is absolutely no harm in bringing all that stuff.   

 

When done with the interview process if you would, please take a moment and report back here if the embassy took your bank statements or employer letter  ...  we learn through others.   Thanks

I think I'll request for my bank statement and job confirmation a month before the interview date, while including my tax forms with the packet I send to my fiancee. You can never be too safe!

 

And of course I will update all of you! You have all been very helpful
