I-864 fees not required if NVC expedite approved?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our application has just been forwarded to the NVC after I attended an interview with USCIS in Kansas City. 


My wife is following a Facebook group and there are several discussions where Filipino beneficiaries are claiming there is no fee for the I-864 Affidavit of Support, if the NVC Expedites your case.


Has anyone experienced having the fee waived due to an expedite request?

It's not something I've ever heard or read about.  It's a fee for the Dept. of State to evaluate the affidavit instead of USCIS.  I don't know how you would avoid paying it.  That I haven't heard of it, doesn't mean it isn't so, but I've heard a lot over the years.

After chatting with some of the people in the Facebook group, it sounds more like this...


If you get your case expedited, you do not pay the $120 to the NVC, you pay it to the Embassy at the time of interview... which makes a lot more sense than the fee being waived.
