Funds from Sources Outside the US

Funds from Source(s) Outside the United States

Whenever an applicant indicates financial support from a source outside the US (for example, from parents living in your home country), the consular officer must determine whether there are restrictions on the transfer of funds from the country concerned. If so, the consular officer must require acceptable evidence that these restrictions will not prevent the funds from being made available during the period of the applicant’s projected stay in the US.
