USCIS To Accept Reproduced Signatures During COVID-19 National Emergency

For petitions filed on March 21, 2020 and beyond, USCIS will begin accepting reproduced original signatures on forms and documents, including Form I-129. A document may be scanned, faxed, photocopied, or similarly reproduced provided that the copy is of an original document containing an original handwritten signature. USCIS will not accept signatures created by a typewriter, word processor, stamp, auto-pen, or similar device. The signatory must have authority to sign on behalf of the petitioning entity.

 

Petitioners or applicants who submit an electronically reproduced original signature must keep copies of the original documents containing the “wet” signature. At their discretion, USCIS may request the original documents at any time. Failure to produce the original document can negatively impact the application.
