Hi All,

I have some confusion concerning the payment of fees for the medical examination and for the interview itself for a K-1 visa. I reached out to the consulate and they did not provide me with any additional information other than, refer to our website for answers. So, any of you who have gone through the interview process in Ankara, if any of you could shed some light I would be most appreciative.

1. The fees for medical must be paid in USD is this correct? If so, does anyone know what form of payment is considered acceptable? Cash, check, credit card, etc? Also, my fiance is unable to locate his medical records so it appears he will need to have some vaccinations most likely. Now I did read that each vaccination can cost somewhere between $5 and $20 a piece, so aside from the standard fees for the medical examination, how much would you suggest that I tell him to take with him to the examination? Also, approximately, how long did the examination take? He is in the process of scheduling his flight tickets and is trying to decide if he could take a return flight home scheduled for 3pm, in that his examination is scheduled for 10:30 am.

2. The fees that have to be paid to TEB for the interview, do any of you know if these fees must be paid to the TEB bank in Ankara or can he pay these fees at any TEB in the city where he lives? Also, concerning the fees for this, they as well must be pain in USD. In that he is going to the bank to make this payment, if he takes lira, they can just do the conversion there, correct?

I know these questions may seem a bit silly however, we are just trying to be as diligent as possible and avoid any issues or problems along the way if at all possible. Any insight any of you can provide would be most appreciated. Thanks so much!
