Hello, Does anyone know the fees for Form I-129F... Is it just the $340 or is there more? Also the work visa fee as well. Trying to figure out what would be best for my significant other and I. Right now we're in Canada. She's Canadian and I'm a U.S Citizen.

Any advice helps Please. :)

Thank you for your time.

Yes, the I-129 filing fee is just the $340, but there are other fees throughout the process for the medical exam and the actual visa itself, at around $190 and $265 respectively. Extra if your fiance is the get any vaccinations.

I'm the Petitioner, she's the loud Dominican :rolleyes:

It is $340 for the I-129F but then you have to spend money on the passport photos, medical exam , if she is required to get vaccines and also depends were in Canada you live you will have to pay plane tickets an hotel to go for interview as in Canada the interview places are in Montreal or Vancouver , same with medical from what I know the medical part is only in Ontario, BC abd Alberta PLUS THE FEE for police certificate

And once u get approved there is more money for plane to come to America for wedding and AOS, GC etc

If it's true love it will all be worth it
