Problems paying Immigrant Visa Fee on USCIS website

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there

Has anyone else had problems paying the visa fee on the USCIS website? I've been trying today (we fly next Wednesday) but I'm getting a 404 error!

I know you can in theory pay when you're over in the US but I'd really rather get it done!

Even the contact form doesn't seem to be letting me submit :/

They are having probs in general. A few weeks back there was an announcement about it.

It is ok to pay when you get here. I paid 3 days after POE and I got the GCs in the mail 5 or 6 weeks later.

2011 - Met hubby online and became friends
Early 2013 - Confessed our love for each other * Late 2013 - I got pregnant with our daughter
2014 - Our baby was born in Athens, Greece and completed our family. We now have two boys and a girl!! 2013 - 2015 - Looking for jobs in Greece, none were available (due to socioeconomic crisis) 2015 - Decided only way to feed our family was to immigrate and started the process December 2015 - Got married (Greece has a LOT of red tape for foreigners marrying Greeks)
January 2016 - Finished gathering all documents and getting them translated
* * DCF in Athens, Greece * *

What does POE stand for? I'm so bad with the lingo! I can guess what it means :)
