Confused About Fees

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am sending in the K-1 visa package on Monday and I was going to enclose a $340 money order from my bank, but now I see another fee of $265 and one for $100? I'm so lost, how much do I need to include with my K-1 Visa package?

I am from the USA, I am filing the K-1 Visa here. My fiance is in Ireland.

I am including....

G-1145 (e-Notification of Application Acceptance)

I-129F (K-1 Visa)

Continuation of Suplement : Part 2, Question 34.a, explanation of meeting in person

G-325A (Petitioner)

Petitioner Passport Photo

G-325A (Beneficiary)

Beneficiary Passport Photo

Petitioner Birth Certificate Front Copy

Petitioner Birth Certificate Back Copy

Petitioner Passport Copy

Petitioner Letter of Intent to Marry

Beneficiary Letter of Intent to Marry

Pastor Letter of Intent to Perform Marriage

Proof of Meeting in Last 2 Years (Airline Ticket Invoice, Itinerary, Passport Stamp, Pictures of us together)

Proof of ongoing relationship (Chat logs, skype logs, e-mails, letters, cards, pictures of personalized gifts)

If anyone could help me figure out exactly how much I need to make my money order out for it would be greatly appreciated!

Just one check for $340.00.

The $265 will be paid later on for the visa, before the interview.

I'm not sure about those $100 that you're mentioning, the only other expense we had besides those two was the medical and plane ticket.

Good luck!

The I-129f is 340

The next payment would be the medical which can range from 200-400 dollars.

You need to think about police certificate costs and passport photographs.

The next payment is for the actual visa before the interview or on the day and that is 265.

And then later on once in America AOS is 1070 dollars.

You do not need a passport copy of the petitioner if the birth certificate is included. You only need one proof of citizenship.
