Who to make the cheque payable to?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It states on the USCIS website that checks should be made out to;

"Department of Homeland Security or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services."

Does this mean that either one will do when applying for the K-1 visa, or does it mean that we should make the cheque payable to one or the otehr depending on which visa we are applying for?

I presume it means you can make it payable to either one of them regardless of what you are applying for, but you can never be too careful so thought I'd check with some experienced folk!

The instructions clearly say:

What Is the Filing Fee.

The filing fee for a Form I-129F is $455.00.

Use the following guidelines when you prepare your check or money order for the Form I-129F fee:

1. The check or money order must be drawn on a bank or other financial institution located in the United States and must be payable in U.S. currency; and

2. Make the check or money order payable to U.S. Department of Homeland Security, unless:

A. If you live in Guam and are filing your petition there, make it payable to Treasurer, Guam.

B. If you live in the U.S. Virgin Islands and are filing your petition there, make it payable to Commissioner of Finance of the Virgin Islands.

C. If you live outside the United States, Guam, or the U.S. Virgin Islands, contact the nearest U.S. consulate or embassy for instructions on the method of payment.
