K1 Interview Paris - Do we need to pay additional fees at the embassy? [merged threads]

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

We are getting excited as my fiancés interview is next week! Yee!

Anyway, I stumbled upon a post that made me wonder...do we need to pay additional fees AT the actual Embassy in paris?

We already paid for:

i-129f

ds 160

medical exam

We haven't paid for i-134 (affidavit of support) yet since we havent yet been asked to submit it...do we need to submit and pay for that at the interview?

Or do we have to pay any fees to attend the interview itself?

Thanks a mil!

You didn't pay for the DS-160 that was the embassy fee $265 .... so no there are no further fees from there with the K-1 visa.

You don't pay for the I-134 you just bring it with you to the interview with supporting documents.

Birth certificates: One original or a certified copy of the birth certificate (copie integrale de l’acte de naissance) is required for each person named in the application. In countries such as France where an updated birth certificate is available, the birth certificate must be less than 3 months old. The birth certificate must state the date and place of birth and the names of both parents. The certificate must also indicate if it is an extract from official records. Birth listings in family booklets (livret de famille) are not accepted."

The wording of this threw me off!

Do they mean each NAME mentioned in the application, or do they mean, if say, my fiance had children and we were applying for him and his children, we would need each APPLICANT'S birth certificate?

Thanks!
