Generally, an I-134 Affidavit of Support for especially B2 visitors is not needed. However, some people, particularly the sponsors of the B2 visitors, may include their I-134 in anticipation that it will help convince consular officials to approve the visiting visa. This presumption is erroneous because, some consular officials may actually assume that the B-2 visitor in question does not have enough funds to afford the trip to the U.S. and thus, deny the application. If you choose to include your I-134, make sure you offer the reasons.
