The Department of State announced that original or “wet ink” signatures are no longer required on Affidavits of Support submitted to the National Visa Center (NVC) in support of certain immigrant visa applications. Photocopies and scanned versions of these documents will be accepted for the pre-screening that the NVC completes before sending an immigrant visa package to a consulate for interviewing and final adjudication. Originals will still be required, however, at the time of interview.
