What the heck?! After all those dollars that we paid...we need another $220 each??

The $220 fee is for the Green Card to be printed.  It is recommended that you pay it before entering the US, but it can be paid after entry.  The Grren Card will not be sent without payment.

 

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.

Green card fee of US$220, to get the physical green card.  Stamp in passport is valid for one year only after POE. 

My wife cam in on a CR-1 visa.  The officer stamped her passport and gave her 2 years.

Does she have to remove conditions?  Not sure if those coming having to remove conditions get a different length of time.  As  I came as an F1 and don't have to remove conditions as I got the green card through parent, so got a 10 year.  Her parents should be the same as they won't have to remove conditions.

Are you talking about the temporary I551 ? The standard wording at the bottom of an immigrant visa is one year. Does CR1 have different printed wording? Or did the officer actually have a 2-year stamp? 

 

Edit: this CR1 has same one year wording as usual. https://goo.gl/images/hedE4r

i wonder if missileman is referring to something else.

Ok. My parents are finally travelling here in the US from the Philippines with and IR5 visa. What other fees do I need to expect? I am going bankcrupt in her :(

Any fees? Airport fee? 

 

Thanks peeps!

 

 

 

If you cannot afford these fees, how are you going to support them?  They both better get jobs that include health insurance.  This is something you needed to consider before sponsoring.
