What other fees are associated with the K1 visa process other than 129F fee? In Ghana, how much are medicals? What are other things we have to pay for? Are there fees associated with the visa application? Are passport photos needed, if so how many?

$340 for the i-129f

$265 for the visa fee

$300-350 for the medical (can differ even more depending on what country it is)

And a bunch of smaller costs if you need to travel back and forth to the embassy, maybe staying at a hotel, getting passport photos, police certificates (and other documents needed), translations and so on.

I'm still trying to figure out what information is accurate. On the State Dept website https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/fees/fees-visa-services.html#permanent

it says that K visas are $265 however on the Ghana Embassy website https://ghana.usembassy.gov/niv-fees.html

the fiance visa fee $240.

I'm also trying to figure out how and where can you pay: online, in person, money order, cash?

I guess Ghana isn't keeping up with the changes, $265 is what it costs now. $240 was back in 2015 or so.

I paid the visa fee online with my debit card. Might be country specific though so you should find the Ghana thread to ask.

Yes I've found that K1 visa is $265 and can be paid at a GT Bank according to

http://www.ustraveldocs.com/gh/gh-niv-visafeeinfo.asp

Visa Types and Application Fee Amounts

The application fees are shown below and apply to one visa application. The application fee for the most common nonimmigrant visa types is $160. This includes tourist, business, student and exchange visas. Most petition-based visas, such as work and religious visas, are $190. K visas cost $240 and the fee amount for E visas is $205. Please note that visa fees for K applicants should be paid at any GT bank locations in Ghana. The tables below are a more comprehensive list of visa types and fee amounts. Following the tables is a short list of nonimmigrant visas which do not require payment of an application fee.

and also on the bank website
