Before inviting a friend from another country to visit you in the United States, make sure they can provide all required documents for the United States consular officers to prove the ability to pay for the trip and be financially supported in the United States. It is necessary to show that all expenses will be covered, otherwise, the permit to cross the border of the country will be rejected. If your guest can’t personally care about the expenses, you may provide a financial support. For this purpose, check the instructions to Form I-134.
All noncitizens who travel to the United States are inadmissible under the immigration law if they are going to “become a public charge”. So, if you are a foreign guest, do your best to avoid breaking the United Stats law. A visa will be unavailable if the agency determines your inability to cover such expenses as lodging, medical treatment, food, and transportation. If you see that you can’t afford it, ask your friend who is a citizen to complete Form I-134 instead of you and provide it at the visa interview to avoid a fee.
Remember that along with our I-134 you are required to provide the evidence of the most recent federal income tax return, letter from your banks that confirm your accounts, letter from your employer, and receipts for any assets.
