Which NVC address should I use??

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am trying to pay my AOS fee by mail. However, in the NVC website, there are two different addresses,

one is Mail the cashier’s check or money order with the fee invoices to the address below:

NVC Fee Processing Center
P.O. Box 790136
St. Louis, MO 63179-0136

another one is

  • Affidavit of Support (AOS) fee payments must be mailed to the following address:

    National Visa Center
    PO Box 790135
    St. Louis, MO 63179-0135

which one should I use?

Is it better to pay AOS and IV fee together if I did NOT do DS-261 or DS-260 online yet?

Hi TracyFan, I sent my AOS fee to the PO Box 790136. What date did you get your case number? I got mine on the 8th and was finally able to log in today and complete my DS261. I would have been able to pay the AOS fee too but I had sent mine in the post last week, which they received last Thursday. I don't know how long it will take to show as paid and that is why I asked what date you got your case number as it might be worth holding on to pay on line if you are able to get on there soon. :)

Hello mommaK! My case number and invoice ID number were assigned on May 19th, I am NOT able to login to the website to do the DS-261 or pay fees. In my welcome letter packet, there is an Affidavit of Support Fee Invoice page which states "you only need to use this invoice if you cannot pay your AOS fee online". That is exactly what Im facing right now. So I dont know to mail in the check or wait for the website...

To be honest I would say wait as there appears to be movement right now. I also had the invoice with the welcome letter and that is what I sent my payment with. The only reason I did that was everyone was saying they could not get on who got their case number is May. Yesterday I saw that someone who had got their case number on the 7th was able to log in and had hoped today would by my turn, and indeed it was! It really might pay you to wait another week as you might be able to log on then and pay straight away. I have to play the waiting game now to see how long before my payment shows up as paid. It's obviously whatever you feel happiest to do at this point. If I had seen movement last week I would have waited for sure.

You're welcome. Yes I saw that. Not so many of us on here I don't think. Please keep me updated on your progress, and vice versa, as it will be lovely to share our journeys with each other. :goofy: Hopefully this time next week, if not sooner, you will be onto the next stage as well.

That's brilliant news!! So now you are ahead of me as I have to wait for my AOS bill to be shown as paid when the money order processing is completed. I'm praying that shows up this week so I can get the IV fee paid next. :clock::rolleyes:

I really hope yours shows up on the website soon.

Do your income meet their requirements? I have to have a joint sponsor. What kind of financial documents you are planning to turn in?

yes we do. My daughter is my petitioner and she isn't working at the moment as she is home with my first grandchild. We will be using my son in laws income on the I-864A supported with tax transcripts for both of them for the last three years. He is active duty so will be sending some pay stubs along too.

I thought you are the petitioner. :rolleyes: Are you in UK now?

Sorry for the confusion :unsure: yes I am in the UK. The visa is for me. I joined the website as there is lots of useful information and advice, and I'm trying my best to make sure we have a complete package to submit so it goes as smooth as possible. :yes:

No, no worries. That's exactly what I am hoping and need to do as well. Let's hope everything goes smoothly for both of us!! :idea:
