Is there a specific nationality for the sponsor in sponsoring DV-Lottery Visa Applicant ?

Asked over 1 year ago - Oakland, CA

A friend of mine has an DV-Lottery Visa interview appointment scheduled to May 2013 at the Assigned US Embassy overseas .Actually, he currently has an Affidavit of Support I-134 Form given by an American Citizen by birth. in fact, A friend of his who is a DV-Lottery Visa winner had already an Affidavit of Support given by an American citizen and the affidavit was refused by the US Embassy as they says that he has to have an affidavit of support given based on the applicant's nationality as they claimed how did the applicant meet/know the US sponsor So, my friend is now afraid the Affidavit he has may not be accepted too.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I agree with my colleague. An affidavit of support sponsor must be a US citizen or Legal permanent resident. If your friend has questions regarding the affidavit of support he should contact an immigration attorney.
