IR-2: After the AOS Fee is paid...?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Petitioning for my step son in the Philippines (IR-2). I've done the DS-261 (Agent) and paid the AOS fee (paid 06-02-15). I'm filling out the I-864EZ. The IV Fee is at $0 and grayed out.

When will the IV Fee be invoice? Am I supposed to send in the AOS documents (I-864EZ) to the NVC now so that it lets me pay the IV Fee, or am I supposed to wait until the IV Fee is invoice to send all the required documents at the same time? I want to make sure I'm following process but their site is a little confusing (at least to me).

Thanks,

Laz

I think I misunderstood your question. I filled for the I-130 on March 4, 2015 and it had a priority date of March 2nd, 2015. It was approved on April 17th but it took 4-5 weeks to be sent to the NVC. Paid the AOS fee and completed the D-261. Just yesterday I got an email that they have accepted the D-261 and I'm now the official agent. Also got my receipt for the IV Processing fee but when I go online it's still at $0 and grayed out. I'm going to go ahead and send all the documents today anyway.

Hi Laz,

Your invoices might have been generated, they may have "forgotten" to send you your invoices.

About 2 weeks ago, I send all AOF supporting documents by email to the NVC, and then 2 days later I called NVC and asked when will I get my invoice. The officer told me to wait and she also said that the invoice is generated by a "program". However, about 2 hours after my call, I got my invoice in my email account, and on the invoice the invoice date is a few days before my call.

So calling NVC might be a good try to get your invoice.

Hi Laz and Lanel24, what I-864 form did you use for your child? Because my husband is also petitioning our 4 yr.old son and we are confused what form to be used. Thank you

I did the I-864ez since I was petitioning only one person (my step-son) and using only my income for the Affidavit of Support. If your husband's income meets the minimum requirements and it's just for your son use the I-864EZ, otherwise I believe you'll have to use the normal I-864.

You have to wait for the DS-261 to be added to the casefile before the IV fee will be available to pay.


Which it probably has by now.. just noted the date on the thread. :)

All,

I just got the below today (about two weeks after I paid my IV fees and filled out the DS-261). It does not say it's been approved but it says an interview will be scheduled. I'm a little confused. I thought once the NVC approved it, it was up to the applicant in the Philippines to schedule the interview. Anybody know?

22-JUL-15

Dear Sir/Madam,

All documentation necessary to complete the National Visa Center's processing of your case has been received. As soon as an interview date has been scheduled, the applicant, petitioner and attorney (if applicable) will be notified.

The applicant should NOT make any travel arrangements, sell property, or give up employment until the US Embassy or Consulate General has issued a visa.

The US Embassy or Consulate General may require additional documentation at the time of the interview.

Sincerely,

Director

National Visa Center
