Hello,

I am about to prepare everything for our I-130 petition and I am tryng to make sure I put aside enough money for the fees. If I understand correctly I need to send in a check for $420 with our I-130 petition. And then once we get to the NVC how much do I need to pay? I am sorry if this question has been asked before I tried to search it and did not find anything specific.

Thanks!!!

nvc - 404 for IV, 88 for AOS.

is additional monies for civil documents at NVC,

and more monies for medical exam after NVC, but those are paid in the 'local country', not to NVC, not to USEmbassy.

I think fees are covered here?

DS-230 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3190.html

I-864 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3730.html

General NVC stuff - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_1335.html


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

I am preparing to do the same and had the same question. The website listing the fees seems to have been updated recently and the following statement concerns me....

[i]Important Notice - New Immigrant Application Fees: Immigrant visa application processing fees and other immigrant visa services fees changed on July 13, 2010, and immigrant visa application processing fees are now tiered. (There is no longer one single visa application fee for all immigrant categories.) Applicants will have to pay the full fees in effect on the day they apply, with the exception of applicants whose fees are collected by the National Visa Center (NVC). Applicants whose fees are collected by NVC, both prior to and after July 13, 2010, will be required to pay only the fees in effect on the day they are billed. Applicants billed by NVC at the current rate prior to July 13, 2010 will not be required to pay the difference between the current and new fees. (Review additional information, including a cost of service study on the www.Regulations.gov website.) [/i]

I know the fees changed in mid July. It see the $420 and then I see $330 (Immediate relative and family preference applications (processed on the basis of an approved I-130, I-600 or I-800 petition)

$88 for review of the I-864

If you find more detailed/current information, I would be interested.

Thanks

fee of 330, I THINK, is to process the I-824, and usually, that's not needed.

Immigrant visa application fee is $330. But, you need to pay "Immigrant visa security surcharge (per person applying for any immigrant visa category)" which is $74.

So, NVC will collect total $404 to process your DS-230 application.
