Documents to submit to NVC for employment based consular processing after DS-260

Recommended Posts


For employment based consular processing, do we need to submit petitioner's affidavit of support to the NVC?.

Background: My I-140 is approved and priority date is current and the case is going through consular processing. I have completed DS-260. Next, I need to submit documents to the NVC but getting confusing information on exactly which documents to submit. My case is not participating in electronic processing, therefore I must send documents to NVC PO box by mail in one package.

The welcome letter lists both my civil documents and petitioner's documents (proof of US status, W2, domicile etc) with signed affidavit of support. An attorney friend advised me that an affidavit of support and other petitioner's documents (listed in #3 below) are submitted to the NVC ONLY for family based cases. They advised me to NOT submit any affidavit of support and related docs (#3 below). As per them, I just need to submit my civil documents and a letter of offer from the prospective employer.

Documents listed in the welcome letter -

1. Cover Sheet
2. Photocopies of Supporting Documents:
  • Passport, birth certificates, PCC etc...
3. Signed Affidavit of Support(s).................... - Do I need to submit these documents to the NVC for employment based consular processing?
  • Proof of U.S. Status
  • Proof of Domicile
  • Petitioner's Civil Documents
  • Proof of relationship (only for I-864A)
  • Evidence of Income
  • Form(s) W-2
  • IRS Tax Transcript
  • Federal Income Tax Returns
  • Social Security Earnings Statement
  • Proof of Assets

Do I need to submit any of the documents listed in #3 above?

Appreciate your help.
