Invoice Number for K-1's?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The NVC gave me an invoice number when I called, so I figured that I could pay our $265 fee online. However, when I enter our information, I get the message that says:

"The National Visa Center has forwarded your file to the US Embassy/Consulate where you are applying for an immigrant visa. Any other required fees must now be paid directly at the Embassy or Consulate at the time of your interview.

Please contact the US Embassy/Consulate if you have any questions. You can find the contact information by consulting this list of US Embassy/Consulate websites."

Are K-1's able to pay visa fees online through CEAC or is that only the spousal visas?
