For a K1/K2, the fee is $265.  This link has the fees for U.S. visas  - https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/fees/fees-visa-services.html.

 

Payment arrangements vary by country.  After completing the DS-160, you need to create an account at the US Travel Docs website - http://www.ustraveldocs.com.  You'll need info from the DS-160 you submitted and it will create a bar coded receipt that you will use to pay the visa fee.  In Vietnam (and many other countries) you bring the receipt to the local post office.  After paying the visa fee, the post office will give you another receipt with a number that you enter at the ustraveldocs website.  DO NOT LOSE THAT RECEIPT!  Once you enter that receipt number, you "unlock" the option to schedule an appointment.

You'll need the case number assigned by NVC (different from the # assigned after filing the petition), but you can get that by calling the NVC.  In Vietnam, there was nothing in the "packet 3" letter from the embassy that was needed to complete the DS-160.  My wife didn't need that letter until the medical exam and interview. - Jason

Awesome, thanks,

We did get the 2nd number from the NVC.

So my friend is all good.

Thanks again.

There is no charge to file the DS-160.  What you are paying for is your visa interview at the embassy.  And as others mentioned the cost for a K1 interview is $265.  You will pay that when you schedule your interview and not when you file the DS-160.
