Common Immigration Mistake: Forgetting to Sign the Application

Forgetting to Sign the Application

Hello, my name is Hana Boston and I’m an immigration attorney at

Today I’m going to talk about one common mistake many people make when preparing their immigration application — forgetting to sign the application.

It might seem like an obvious tip, but did you know that unsigned applications are one of the top reasons for rejection year after year? Applications that aren’t signed are immediately rejected.

Now, it’s important to note that a “rejection” is NOT a “denial.” When an application is rejected, it’s returned to you with the government fee. But in the case of a denial, you’ll have to resubmit the entire application, including the fee — that’s if you can even apply again!

With a rejection, you can fix your mistake but you’ll have wasted time and lengthened the immigration process.
