It's not $230.

Earlier fee was $330 + surcharge $74 = $404

New fee is $230 + surcharge $74 = $304

There is no reduction in the surcharge.

Actually they do not mention the surcharge on the site anymore. They have updated the prices to reflect the new changes and it shows up as only $230. Even the agents mentioned that it is $230 without a surcharge. We will all know once they release the invoices this week. :)

Thanks a lot for the update, Saylin! It is very useful...

I'll wait for another week, as you said; it is for parents (IR5)...

Good to see you guys are still active here :-)

Loto

Heya Loto - nice to see you back (is that you?)

Loto's Wiki Page - http://www.visajourn..._live_in_the_US

http://www.visajourn...p/EZGuideSpouse

It is same Loto, Darnell :-)

Good to see you here as well...

Oh, I had updated the IV fee in that document today as well :-)

Loto

It's not $230.

Earlier fee was $330 + surcharge $74 = $404

New fee is $230 + surcharge $74 = $304

There is no reduction in the surcharge.

Thanks Divs for the correction!

If so, NVC has not updated their site for Surcharge in the above link I provided...

Let's wait and see, VaggoLena :-)

We'll know, may be, this week...

every citizen should know this is too good to be true

i remember when all my political science classmates were happy when the government announce that they going to bail the banking industry out. it was just me, my professor, and few others like - the money has to come from somewhere..

btw. i have a MPA degree with courses concentrated in performance management. the city doesn't want to hire me because i will make the unions work a little harder.
