Greetings everyone i am the petitioner and the Wife(Serbia) had her interview this past thursday :) 12th and was approved.She's Picking up Her Documents/Passport and Visa tomorrow! With that being said i over read this 'USCIS Immigrant Fee - You must pay the USCIS Immigrant Fee to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) after you receive your immigrant visa and before you travel to the United States." via NVC now i'm confused O.o i though i already paid this fee during the whole process with USCIS? lastly will there be instructions for Her once picking up Her visa tomorrow? thanks for any info

An immigrant fee is the separate fee for producing green card for your wife and delivering it to your US home address. Also, an immigrant fee is not part of NVC fees. Everyone will pay separate fees after visa approval. Your wife won't get a plastic card of green card if you don't pay an immigrant fee.

Yes, correct. When she picks up her packet, information/instructions will be displayed on the tag of sealed envelope/packet, but do not open the sealed envelope/packet. or information on visa too. Remember to pay immigrant fee before she departs for the US. (she can still pay after she lands in US, but US embassy recommends to pay an immigrant fee before she departs for the U.S.).

See tip: http://www.uscis.gov/uscis-elis/immigrant-fee-payment-tips-finding-your-number-and-dos-case-id

When she arrives in the US, officer at the POE (airport, land border post, seaport, etc) will verify her visa and enable it to let USCIS produce green card and deliver it to your US home address. Please make sure to tell your wife to see if POE officer stamp an I-551 annotation on her passport. It is important! While waiting fo receive a green card, I-551 annotation is good for one year and allows her to work right away with her new ssn. It allows to travel and reenter US with I-551.
