Packet three approved, next step interview!

Recommended Posts

So my fiancee submitted his packet three checklist and all today and has already received an email stating it was approved and he can schedule an interview and schedule a medical exam.  Yay!!  Aside from that, can anyone remember the fee to pay?  He forwarded me the email from them and we are confused on what to pay or if we need to have payment for anything.  The following was sent:


  • I-130 immigrant petitions filled in CA: $420
  • IV fee for each family member added to petition: $325
  • For family based applications Employment based: $345
  • SIV cases: $205
  • DV cases: $330
  • K (Fiancee Visas) cash only: $265.


I already paid for the I-129F (fiancee visa).  But I am assuming he would need to pay the $265?  It is for just him, no kids or family members.  Thanks guys.  We are so excited to almost be done with the last step in this process.  Then I guess start the new process.

Yes, the USD 265 plus medical fee, or any fees for birth certificates, police reports etc.

Medical is different by country, as I researched for Switzerland, we pay about 500 - 750. crazy!
