Okay guys, so, finally getting around to submitting my completed application, and i'm getting conflicting information on the filing fee.

http://www.uscis.gov/i-129f

This website says its $340 which i originally thought.

http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/fees-visa-services.html

This one says its $265.

Anyone know why these are conflicting?

The fees are for two different things.

There is a fee for filing the I-129f ($340) and then once your fiancé hits the interview portion the visa fee must be paid for the actual issuance of the K-1 visa ($265)

I agree. You pay the $340 now for the petition and the $265 when you go in to apply for the visa.

I'm not sure if some or all consulates break up the fees, but in my consulate the $265 fee, $160 is paid to the bank, the remaining $105 is paid at the interview. The full $340 fee would be payable to homeland security.

You are CR-1 spousal visa, you pay different fees. This is K-1 fiancee visa.

Um...I wasn't referring to CR1 visas, I was talking about the K1.
