Number codes?

I paid mine today. I just told them I was paying for a K1. The fee is $350. The fees are different for other visas I believe, so you'll know which is yours. They are really helpful and chatty, they explain everything a ton of times.

Yep. There's a message at the start of the call that cannot be skipped past, even if you've heard it a dozen times. As soon as that initial message has finished though, (about 30 seconds into the call) you can press the relevant numbers on your phone. I don't remember what it was for me but I think it was something like 3 then 1 for paying a K1 fee (Don't take my word for it though). Then if you're very lucky you won't hear the message saying that all lines are busy. The person on the other end will rather slowly repeat every piece of info you give them. Of course they just do that to make sure they don't make any mistakes, not because they want to keep you on the line for longer. ;)
