Hopefully, the next step is you going to the airport with your visa. LOL

But seriously, I think that's it as far as fees are concerned. If you're on CR1, at least you wont have to adjust status in the states. That's $1,010!!!

my goodness! everything costs so much more these days.....

Love ain't cheap... :devil: Gotta pay to play... :yes:

Yes I agree :lol: The easiest way to add up all the costs for me is $1.50 a mile so it does not feel

so expensive. Total cost to travel to meet your sweetheart and bring her to the U.S. and get married

is only $1.50 a mile. 10,000 miles X $1.50 = $15,000.00 :cry::cry::cry:
