Hello Peru Filiers.

My K1 Visa Left the NVC and is "IN TRANSIT" as of today. I read all of the previous posts thank you NinyaMonkey and Gio and David. I have a few questions:

1. What information do you need to pay the $265 fee at ScotiaBank? Just the LMA Case Number? Or do you need to have a copy of the the Instruction Letter from the Embassy? Do I need to show the completed DS 160 form?

2. Can my fiancee' start collecting the 3 Police and National Records needed for the interview now or wait until closer to the Interview?

3. The sample Embassy Letter states that it is $265 paid at Scotia Bank PER PERSON. If i am also applying for a K2 Visa for my Fiancee's daughter does that mean I need to pay 2 x $265.00?

4. I know for the K2 I also need to get a medical examination for her daughter, but do I have to get the police records and national records for the daughter as well?

5. And does my fiancee's daughter who is 9 years old need to be at the interview at the embassy as well?

6. Does the embassy ask the minor children questions?

7. How many total Passport photos are needed? I know I need 2 for the interview but how many for the medical appointment?

Thanks for all your help VJers!!!!!

Hello! Welcome and Lots of luck!

1. Look on the embassy website, there should be a code for what you pay a Scotia Bank, it's usually something like "formulario ......" and you will keep that receipt and bring it to the embassy.

2. The Police and National records have a 90 expiration, so she can go get them if you feel that they will not expire before the interview.

3. I am not 100% certain but you will more than likely be paying that fee twice (per visa).

4, 5, and 6- I do not know much about the child aspect of all of this. Hopefully someone who knows a little more will come along and be able to answer for you.

7. I believe it's 6 passport photos for the medical exam.

Take a look at the consulate information page to help answer more of your questions http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Peru&cty=Lima

Lots of luck!!!

It looks like the "invoice" for the K1 visa fee is generated from the embassy and is emailed to you when you go online to schedule your appointment. This is mentioned in the example letter from a previous post.

  1. REGISTRO: Para la creación de registros siga las siguientes instrucciones:

Complete la información solicitada para la creación de su cuenta. Ingrese el Captcha y presione “Create Account”
Una vez que ingrese toda su información personal, llegara a la página de resumen que le indicara que debe seleccionar un “Delivery Locatiion”. Presione Continue.

Seleccione la oficina de DHL de su preferencia y Presione “Continue”.

El Sistema le confirmará que ha creado su cuenta en forma exitosa y enviará un email a la cuenta de correo electrónico registrada.

Para hacer el pago correspondiente de la tasa MRV recibirá un correo electrónico con el talón de depósito el cual deberá llevar al ScotiaBank para la cancelación.

English Translation

1.REGISTRO: For creating records follow the instructions below:

Complete the information requested to create your account. Enter the Captcha and click "Create Account"
Once you enter all your personal information, come to the summary page indicating that you must select a "Delivery locatiion". Press Continue.

Select the DHL office of your choice and press "Continue".

The system will confirm that your account has been created successfully and sent an email to the registered email account.


To make the payment of the MRV fee will receive an email with the deposit slip which should lead to Scotia Bank for cancellation.

My case is still in transit to the embassy so I am not positive. I would love to hear from someone who just went through the process.
