what one would be expected to send by mail with I-539 application as a proof of non-immigrant intent, while they are already in the country?
And beside for that, and the required documentation as per form instructions, what other key "evidence" must be submitted with this form.Particularly, will the U.S. Bank account on his name, opened and funded very recently, with required amount of funds for a year of tuition and living expenses, be a satisfactory prof of financial sufficiency? --WITHOUT SPECIFYING HOW THE ACCOUNT WAS FUNDED.(Presumably he funded it with money he raised from the unnamed U.S. friends, sponsors/investors of/in his entrepreneurial interests in Philippines, to development of which his education has relationship).
But does this statement NEED to be made as part of I-539?Can he state that he funded the account with his own money?Ultimately -- does he have to account for the source of money in his U.S. account?
(By law, this is responsibly falls on the of the bank [Anti- Money Laundering, Corruption, and Terrorism Financing Laws and Regulations for banks and financial institutions, part of which is a KYC provision -- "Know Your Client", which literally requires literally knowing (and independently researching, confirming, enriching, and regularly reverifying and updating) --if this is not possible to do, banks will not be able to offer services to a client-- what person is up to occupationally/source of income, residence, family/companionship, residences around the world, it's advised to customers that all cash deposits more than $9,999 are reported to Federal Reserve Board, and rather recommended to deposit checks or or payment instruments from the named sources, to avoid unnecessary scrutiny.
...Plus requirements in scope of AML for!documenting and retaining for 7 yrs (and often much longer) all electronic sources (address, including international) of any "wire"/EFT deposits (and for small cash-heavy operations, prone to money laundering, there are special integrated programs in conjunction with IRS and other agencies --beyond the scope of this conversation] just FYI.So this is very well controlled.
I can send him EFT to his Philippines Bank and he's gonna have this money on his card, or I can make a few deposits to U.S. bank, where he can deposit some other checks he raises here from his family and friends for his cause
Any U.S. college and USCIS would much rather trust money in Bank of America than in Banco Philippines.But disclosing all the good peoples who chipped in for his tuition is impractical.
And I don't want to get involved and become a named sponsor, even not taking any responsibility. Before I get citizenship
, I don't want to get mixed up in various shenanigans in USCIS papers.So -- you may want to reread the questions in the beginning.
