Good morning guys .

we have 4 cases in the national visa center and now i entering the site and i found that the ask about the $325 for IV fees for 3 cases only but they don`t send the fee invoice to the mail , so i have two question

1- we will pay the fees by the mail , can we make money orders for the cases without sending the fee invoice depending on the site only ?

2- can we send money order with $325 for the last case that they don`t ask about their money till now , or we must wait till it ask about the fees on the site ?

1- we will pay the fees by the mail , can we make money orders for the cases without sending the fee invoice depending on the site only ?

You have to have a INVOICE for each fee you are sending in by mail. Example:

Case 1 Invoice , Money order

Case 2 Invoice, Money order

Case 3 Invoice, Money order

Case 4 No Invoice No Money Order

2- can we send money order with $325 for the last case that they don`t ask about their money till now , or we must wait till it ask about the fees on the site?

Dear ,

We registered you as the agent for immigrant visa case: . Please visit our website at http://nvc.state.gov and work with the applicant to complete steps two through six of the NVC process:

Step 2: Pay fees

Step 3: Submit visa application form

Step 4: Collect financial documents

Step 5: Collect supporting documents

Step 6: Submit documents to the NVC

Included with this letter is the Immigrant Visa Fee invoice(s) you will need if you have to pay your Immigrant Visa Fee(s) by mail. If you did not receive an Immigrant Visa Fee Invoice for any applicant who should be listed on this case, do not submit a fee payment for the applicant. Instead, please contact the NVC and we will help you.

I would advised that you follow the instructions they have provided for you. Call the NVC about that 4th case

I hope this helps have a good weekend and best of luck

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I knew no other way than this, where 'I' does not exist, nor 'you'. So close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
