Original Signatures No Longer Required for Affidavit of Support Forms (I-864, etc.)

The National Visa Center (NVC) announced that it will accept photocopies and scanned versions of signed the Affidavit of Support Forms: I­-864, I-864A, I-864EZ and I-864W, starting January 1, 2017. Original signatures are no longer required.

The Affidavit of Support Form is required for Family-Based immigration applications.  The petitioner and/or a joint sponsor must provide evidence to show that they have enough financial responses to support the individuals immigrating to the U.S.
