I can't pay IV FEE yet

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I completed my DS-261 on March 19.

and I still haven't received IV fee invoice yet. I called NVC on April 29. The operator told me that I can receive IV fee invoice in 2 or 3 days. But Im still waiting for it.

Does anyone have same situation?

I already sent AOS and IV package last month.

What should I do?

Call call call, until they agree to review your DS-261 over the phone. They are quoting it takes 42 days to review it. So that is why your fee in not available.

Sorry my bad, if your DS-261 has been reviewed then it took ours 2 days to become available. I would call them to make sure it has.

I got an invoice through email and mailed it yesterday. You will probably get it by email. The site is still freezed out even though according to the email, it was issued on May 4th. Keep checking your email or call them again.

Read your post again.. Print the invoice, buy a money order of $325 and mail it to the St. Louis, MO address provided. IF YOU HAVE THE invoice already emailed, then don't wait around for them. Mail it in.
