Immigrant Visa Application Fee is not available for payment

Hello everyone,

I am a petitioner for a foreign relative, mother. We are currently at the "Pay Fees" stage of my mom's immigration process.

This page

http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/immigrate/immigrant-process/approved/Step_1_Choose_an_agent.html

recommends waiting at least 15 days to pay the fees after the submission of DS-261. We submitted the DS-261 form more than 15 days ago choosing me as the agent. Now when I login to pay the fees, only the Affidavit of Support fee is available for payment but not the Immigrant Visa Application fee.

Should I give NVC more time to process DS-261? Should I pay the AOS fee now or wait until the IV application fee is posted to pay them at the same time? Has this happened to anyone before? Thank you.

it could be up to 60 days! the IV becomes available for payment only after the ds-261 has been reviewed. so just take it easy when it is reviewed it will surely be available for you to pay. use this time to gather your civil documents and make them ready for submission immediately the IV is available for you to pay!

So the status of the AOS fee has changed to PAID but unfortunately the IV application fee is still unavailable for payment. As youngman2013 said it must be waiting on the processing of DS-261.
