Can I self sponsor myself on I-134 (Affidavit of support)?

10018 |

I have enough funds to support myself for a temporary visit to US. I don't know anyone in US. Can I self sponsor myself on I 134? I read on the internet either sponsor or applicant has to show enough finances to support in the US.

  1. It is unclear why you are completing an I-134. We would need to know what type of visa you are applying for to answer.


  2. If you're applying for a visitor visa and are trying to show yourself financially stable, you don't have to fill out the I-134. You can being bank statements in your name to show balances as proof.
