Question about fees for I-129F

Hi everyone

I've been looking for information on the fee to send with the I-129F form. On the USCIS site it says $340 but I've also seen $350 somewhere and somewhere else saying that the fees for K1 visa were reduced to $240 as of April 13th... thinking the USCIS site has to be correct, but what is that about a reduced fee?

I'm sure this question has been asked already but I haven't been able to track it down and I really want to send our petition asap.

Many thanks to everyone on this community, so far I've had such helpful responses to my questions. Really means a lot :)

The petition fee -- the one that will accompany the I-129F petition and supporting materials -- is still $340. The fee that changed was the cost of the visa that is paid at the embassy stage of the process.

Always follow the instructions provided in the I-129F.

I agree with LeftCoastLady.

$340 = petition fee

$240 = visa fee (since April 13th as you said)
