Is there an Immigrant fee for the K-1 as in other visa categories?

Once you receive you K-1 (I'm hoping to receive it this week. CEAC status is 'Issued' since Monday), do you have to pay an additional Immigrant fee as other visa categories do?

I'm just checking, because money is really tight, and we want to be certain.

The K-1 is a non-immigrant visa. There is no immigrant fee for the K-1.

Exemptions

The following groups do not have to pay the USCIS Immigrant Fee: Children who enter the United States under the orphan or Hague adoption programs;

Iraqi and Afghan special immigrants;

Returning lawful permanent residents (SB-1s); and

K nonimmigrants.

AOS will cost you $1070 though.

Great! thanks for the information. I was aware of the $1000-ish for the AOS, but had doubts. Again, Gracias!
