I-914, Application for T Nonimmigrant Status

ALERT: As required by Federal Regulations, all applications filed with USCIS must be properly completed, submitted, and executed in accordance with the applicable form instructions. See 8 CFR 103.2(a)(1); 8 CFR 103.2(b)(1). Properly completed forms help ensure that USCIS can verify the identity and eligibility of applicants, and will help reduce the need for USCIS to issue requests for evidence because information is missing on applications. 

USCIS may reject your Form I-914 and/or your Form I-914, Supplement A, if you leave a required field blank, unless the field is optional according to the form text or form instructions. Optional fields include those you should complete only if you answered “yes” to a previous question or fields that state “if any” in the heading for the field. You must provide a response to all required questions, even if the response is “none,” “unknown,” or “n/a.” We will reject a Form I-914 and, if applicable, a Form I-914, Supplement A, that has, for example, an empty field for gender, other names used, marital status, current immigration status, information about a spouse or child, or tables not completed where appropriate.

Public Charge Ground of Inadmissibility 

Certain classes of aliens are exempt from the public charge ground of inadmissibility (such as refugees, asylees, certain self-petitioners under the federal Violence Against Women Act, petitioners for U visas, nonimmigrants on U visas seeking to adjust status, applicants for T visas, and certain nonimmigrants on T visas seeking to adjust status). 

Therefore, applicants who file Forms I-914 and 914A are not subject to the final rule. For more information about the classes of aliens who are exempt from the Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds final rule, please see the Policy Manual. For more information on the final rule, please see our public charge and factsheet webpages.
