USCIS Form I-134 Declaration of Financial Support

What Is Form I-134?

Form I-134, Affidavit of Support, is a statement completed by U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (green card holders) to show their intent to support non-U.S. citizens financially during their visit to the U.S. This document is often used for visitor visas and tourist visas where the beneficiary's financial situation does not avoid the risk of being found inadmissible to the U.S. as a likely public charge. The U.S. government needs to see the foreign visitor will not become a liability, will not need to find a job, or seek public benefits - however, approval of the affidavit does not guarantee the issuance of the visa.

Alternate Names:

  • USCIS Form I-134;
  • USCIS Affidavit of Support Form.

This form was released by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The latest version of the form was issued on November 9, 2023, with all previous editions obsolete. You can download a fillable I-134 Form through the link below.

Where to File Form I-134?

You need to send a properly signed Affidavit of Support to the foreign visitor it is prepared for. Then, this individual submits Form I-134 to their U.S. consulate with a visa request. The USCIS does not charge any filing fee for I-134 Form. The sponsor must also provide the visitor with evidence to show sufficient income and financial resources.

Form I-134 supporting documents include bank statements, employer letter that states the sponsor's position and salary, copy of the last income tax return, list of bonds, etc. Additionally, you need to present a copy of the document that shows your citizenship or immigration status - a copy of a U.S. passport, green card, or naturalization certificate. Without these documents, your affidavit may be rejected or denied.

How to Withdraw Affidavit of Support (I-134)?

If you change your mind and no longer can or want to support your foreign national family member or friend, you may withdraw Form I-134. Whether the USCIS approved your affidavit or did not, you may easily withdraw the support. Write the USCIS office that is currently reviewing your affidavit. Request the withdrawal, provide your full name, date of birth, personal details of the beneficiary, and the identifying number for your affidavit that you can find on the receipt notice - Form I-797, Notice of Action. If you wish, you may disclose the basis for withdrawal - if you do not, it will not affect any future petitions or affidavits you will file in the future. Once the request for the cancellation of an affidavit is received, the USCIS will review it and mail you a confirmation of the withdrawal.
