NVC K1 visa fee info overload(Philippines to US)

Hello all this is my first topic to post. I apologize if I have posted in wrong area or if the information has been staring at me

in the face the whole time. I have been reading, reading, and reading and just feel overwhelmed with information. Our process

seems to be moving WAY faster than I had anticipated and feel my self scrambling :wow: However, very excited. I am sorry to

hear about those who are still waiting. So here I am. I am trying to find a break down of every fee. I've sent the packet of with

the $340. NVC recieved the packet Thursday and have already assigned me a case number and are in the middle of processing it now.

I see that there will be a medical interview fee. New price is $240. I am sure there are other small fee's, but I keep seeing information

about a visa fee of $240 that can be paid anytime. We will need that reciept for the interview it seems once she is here in the US.

So to be clear we will have to pay $240 for Visa fee as well? Does this have to be paid before her interview? Do we have to wait for
the Embassy in Manila to recieve the packet before we pay? This fee WASN'T part of the original $340 correct?

I apologize I have like 15 different tabs on my browser open looking at different topics, forums, and stuff trying to figure this out and feel

just a little overwhelmed trying to get everything in order. Working all the extra overtime hours doesn't leave me much time to sort through

this all.

P.S. I am also late on paying my taxes(hence the overtime) will I need to ensure those are paid before I send over copies of my tax forms

and stuff or can I just send copies of my 1040's and such. Between getting those caught up and the speed of this process its a becoming

a little financially tight :lol:

Thank you for reading and responding :)

I could be wrong but from my study you need approximately $240 (or a little more) that you have to pay before the interview and you cannot make the interview until you pay it through BPI. Then, you will need $265 (or a little more) for the medical exam. Also, I think the CENOMAR and the NBI cost a little but not much. I went to the embassy and visaconnection.com to print the information of what exactly will be needed to complete everything. none of this is included in the $340 you paid to the USCIS. Hope this helps.

Use this guide: http://visaconnection-philippines.com/#

Simply put, after you get your case number, you can go pay the $240 visa fee anytime at BPI, then schedule your interview, and then complete your medical (medical fee is $245) at least a week before your interview appointment. You also have to go to the CFO Seminar (a requirement for Filipinos who are immigrating) and it is Php400.

Extra fees can be for other documents you still need for your interview or to buy the things you need for your trip to USA after a successful interview!

Here is the interview preparation guidelines so you can check which documents you still need:
