Hi, everyone:

I would like to ask the comunity if anyone has a long delay in the invoiced of the IV fee. I sended the D-231 more than a month ago (I have to say that I made the mistake to resend it, but it was still more than a month ago).

In addition: How long did it take for them to generate the invoiced the fee for you?

Thank you!

Hello,

I just called tonight and they told me it is taking up to 42 days for them to process the DS-261. Once that is completed then you should be invoiced for the IV fee.

I submitted my DS-261 on March 12/15 and am still waiting for it to be reviewed.

Take care,

Stephanie
