Also, you and your sponsored family members need to agree to certain responsibilities during the undertaking period. We call this the sponsorship agreement.
The sponsorship agreement means that
you’ll provide for the basic needs of your sponsored family members, including
health care not covered by public health insurance, such as eye and dental care
