IV bill payment

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ members.

I just recieved the IV bill and instructions to pay online, after a few days of sending the DS 3032. I paid the AOS processing fee last week.

now when I log in to the site it shows that AOS fee is paid but the option to pay IV bill is greyed out. Does it take a few days before I can pay it. Or is there any other reason? I have read a few post of people not having IIN but I go that already on the invoice for IV bill. I can log in perfectly but the option to click on the little box and pay is not there. its all greyed out.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Just to make sure, you're using IE right?

If so, then just wait a day or two. It does take time for things to be invoiced at NVC.

I would suggest u to wait until they activate the link to pay DS 230 fees. More important dont pay even if they activate in this week coz from 13 april IV fees are reduced from 330 $ to 230$, u will save 100 $ if u pay it after 13 April.

I'm a little confused, the DS-230 is currently $330? That's the same as the IV fee, right? If so, I just paid $404 the other day. Also maybe you'd know the answer to this question: When you pay the IV Fee, NVC refers to it as a visa processing fee. Does the $404 cover the actual cost of the visa or just to apply for one and a separate bill will be sent for the cost of the actual visa? Thanks for any info.

The IV fee IS for the DS-230. IV stands for Immigrant Visa. The DS-230 form is called the Immigrant Visa Application. It currently costs $330 plus $74, a total of $404.

After you pay the AOS and IV fees, there are no more fees to pay.

Is not the AOS fee $88 now instead of $74 because it includes biomatrics fee as well.

The $74 fee doesn't apply to the AOS. The $74 surcharge is only for the IV fee. The AOS is $88 and has been for quite awhile.

I paid the AOS fee of 88 dollars last week. now I got the bill for IV which is 404 dollars.

So to understand correctly there are no more fees after that ?

how long does it usually take for the counslate to get the file from NVC and how long does it usually take for the counslate to schdule somoene for an interview?

when do they ask for Affidavite of support forms etc?

No more fee at your end after IV fee. Your spouse may have to pay for sending any paperwork to consulate through courier.

If everything goes well at NVC then probably 1-2 weeks till they forward the case to embassy or consulate abroad.

Interview date could be 4-8 weeks later after the consulate receives documents. Not sure though it depends on their schedule and varies for different consulates. You may refer to embassy reviews or information section for this.

The beneficiary may be asked to show affidavit of support at time of interview.

The only fees left are:

-medical

-courier fee to receive your visa/passport after interview (if applicable, free for Canadians)

-flight to US

The consulate/embassy doesn't schedule the interview (in most cases), it's NVC that does. Once your interview date is scheduled with NVC, then the case is shipped out, typically the next day.

The AOS package is sent during the NVC stage, after the AOS bill appears as PAID in the payment portal.

No more fee at your end after IV fee. Your spouse may have to pay for sending any paperwork to consulate through courier.

If everything goes well at NVC then probably 1-2 weeks till they forward the case to embassy or consulate abroad.

Interview date could be 4-8 weeks later after the consulate receives documents. Not sure though it depends on their schedule and varies for different consulates. You may refer to embassy reviews or information section for this.

Please see my answer above on a few things.

Saylin is the go-to girl for NVC procedures but you can take a look at my timeline and signature for an idea of UK specific timings.

Have you booked/had your medical yet?
