If petitioner is choice of agent for beneficiary on I-130, do immigration accept copy of immigration application?

Chesapeake, VA |

Beneficiary will be faxing the information back to petitioner, who will then mail it to the immigration. Do immigration require original application or can it be copy?

  1. USCIS will want to see original signatures. Ask the petitioner to send the paperwork via a courier.
