Hi all,

Just a quick query, I know that the fee for K-1 visa's was looking to be increased, but it says in the info pack that his fee for "immigration visa's" is $400 in total per person, does K-1 count as an immigration visa, or do i still pay the $131?

Thanks,

Arch

I'm the wife of an American Soldier;

I'm the hope that lives within him after storm clouded days.

The freedom from war that gives wings to his heart,

May they reach across the miles and bind our hearts together

against all that we must face in this world.

Yep..

Visa fee CURRENTLY is $131, but it will be increasing at some point in the near future to $355 (or so it has been speculated). DOS announced plans to increase the visa fees across the board in December, 2009 and took public comments about the propopsed fee increases for a couple of months. They haven't announced their decision yet, but you can be sure that the fees will increase.
