Interview letter and fees

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have my interview on Friday of this week and am getting a little nervous about it all. Have i got every thing, the right forms etc

Is the form i received from the embassy, stating that they are ready to begin final processing my interview letter? or is it a separate document? It does show my visa appointment date and time on the bottom of the form, so will this be sufficient or is there a different interview letter i need?

Also i have read somewhere that you have to phone up prior to your interview to pay your visa fee's but on the bottom of the IV019 information sheet it says you pay $240 at the Embassy on the day of the interview and the fee is paid to the operated assisted information service, what does this mean!!

Sorry to act a little dense on this, but having got this far i just want it to go as smoothly as possible!!

Many thanks in advance!!

Yes, that's your letter. Take that with you! I'm not aware that they send 2 letters.

The sheet is wrong about fees. K1 applicants pay in advance (where as spouses pay on the day). It's dumb that they're still sending out incorrect directions. Here's a thread asking the same thing: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/425397-london-k1-visa-fee-confusion/

Oh, and good luck in the interview! :)
