i recently asked a question and no one answered. Received my email from NVC giving interview date and needed items. It states the fees as paid. My lawyer says i need to take $404 to embassy day of interview. Which is right? I paid both fees to NVC when they posted invoices. So. do I owe another? They did not mention it in the 4 pages of instructions. Thanks ahead of time.

The $404 is the fee for the DS-230/IV Packet. If this was paid this you should have received a barcoded sheet to print off from the sign-in-page and sent the packet to NVC. If you did this or it was done, I have no idea what the additional $404 your lawyer is asking for...unless this something country specific, which I doubt.

I had 2 separate fees with NVC. One was for $88 and that other for Just over $300 (don't remember the amount. I sent the bar coded receipts in with my package. Jeanne

If you filed Cr1 then you shouldnt' have to pay any fees unless they ask for courier fees for passport. We filed CR1 and paid 88 for AOS pkg and 404 for ds230 and overnighted them to NVC. Then NVC forwarded to embassy and all my husband had to do was show up and pay whatever fees he had for his overnight stay and shuttle service. That was it. K1 visas I think are the only ones that request fees at the time of interview. But Cr1 does not it was paid at the time you sent the items to NVC with barcoded letters attached to each package.

Thanks!!

It did not make sense to me either as NVC letter stated fees paid.

I appreciate the feedback.

Jeanne

good luck

anyway, i have my receipts showing I paid one $404 fee for immigrant visa application and one $88 for affidavit of Support

You're set!!! those are the ones!!!

Scan the receipts for your husband to use at interview in case they ask for more fees...I did this and it definitely was worth taking. We didnt get asked but there were ppl in the embassy that were requested to pay another fee and they were saying it was already paid but didnt bring in the receipt for proof.
