Hello!

I need your help about a question..is that true that for k1 Visa we will have to pay an extra fee of 125$ once we arrive at the airport in the USA? and if so, where is written that??

Today and tomorrow I will be at the usa embassy for my visa interview and I met a guy that just like me, he's doing the fiancee process..and he came up saying something about this extra fees...it that true, or is he misunderstanding???

Thanks a lot!!

I'm not familiar with the K-1 visa but was he maybe talking about the border crossing fee of $160? Below is a link to the state department's website about fees. You can also find more information there about the k-1 visa.

There is absolutely no extra fee when using the K-1 visa to enter the US.

Perhaps he was talking about the $165 fee for the green card processing. Is he fiance visa or spousal?

When you get to your P.O.E..,.,., you will pay no additional fees. All fees, will be paid during the interview, medical process. Maybe some airport departure fees.,.,.,.,.,but nothing at your USA destination.
