After your I-130 is approved, you go to the NVC stage. At NVC, you pay two fees (AOS - $88, IV - $404). After those both appear as PAID on the payment portal site, then you snail mail the two packages, AOS and IV. In the IV package, you include the DS-230, the Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration form.

And there is no fee for an IR-1/CR-1 visa applicant at the consulate/embassy, just $88 and $404 at NVC and then the cost of the medical which varies by country.

Please read these guides to familiarize yourself with NVC:

I am unsure of your specific context for this visa category. By this, I refer to whether you are a native American Citizen or Cuban American. From my personal experience, I had to follow the guide listed on this website to a letter. I-130 with the g325a. Then a DS-230 and i864 form for the NVC steps.

At the interview (on may 25), I did not have to pay for a visa. They did not charge me for anything.

The Carta Blanca is about 150 Cuc. Take it to your visa interview at migracion. Depending on whether you are PRI o salida definida, they will tell you what else you need. The rules are on minrex.cu or something.

Hi, Rumba,

I'am a Cuban American Citizen and I did follow the same steps as you but I thought the Carta Blanca is after your approved at the interview. Iam glad you told me, how long does it take to get it? also the interview date is it given by NVC or you need to call the Cuban embassy? You here so many stories but the best and clear answers you will get is from someone like you who has just gone through the entire process!

Thank you so much!!! :)

THe carta Blanca is for the Cuban Migracion Interview, not the American one. So you're right. You buy the carta blance at the main bank for about 150 cuc. Usually the process takes awhile because they investigate your case. I wish I could elaborate on the process but Im not sure what they do. Depending on the exit status (indefintive or definitivo), it can take from 1 month to 5 months for a process complete. I hate to give such a large gap but it is true. Please remember that the law changed where you can get your PRE (PSI for USA) before the Interview with USA. Now you can only start the exit process after you have the American Visa.
