Any fee after visa approval

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am on the same boat. My mom just got approved yesterday and was told to wait for her passport to be dellivered. I was expecting that they'd give her a slip of paper showing details on how to pay for her IV fee but she got nothing. I read on the USCIS website that they recommend paying the IV fee before they fly to the US to avoid delays on their green card processing, and that is what I am planning to do. They did mention that they will receive an IV packet from the Embassy, so where is it?

Here's where I found the info:
