Application Fee: Packet 3 vs Packet 4

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The Instruction Packet for Finance K Vida Applicants (Packet 3) lists one of the documents that needs to be sent in with Packet 3 is a "Receipt of Application Fee Payment". It goes on to explain:

"Each fiancé(e) (K) visa applicant must pay the visa fee at any of the 700 designated branches of Krungsri Bank using the CGI Pay Instruction Sheet and Bay Bank Deposit Slip from your GSS profile. Krungsri Bank cannot accept your visa fee payment without both of these documents. The CGI slip states your visa fee amount in Thai baht (equal to USD 265). Mail the original with your packet, but retain a copy for your files."

 

 

The Appointment Packet for Immigrant Visa Applicants (Packet 4) document says:

"If you or your petitioner has not already paid the visa application fees, the applicant must pay the US$325 (US$330 for each Diversity Visa applicant) or Thai baht equivalent on the day of the interview."

 

 

Could someone explain what is going on here? Are these the same fee (assuming the higher one is a more recent update)? If so, can you skip paying at the Packet 3 step and just pay at the interview? It would be nice to be able to skip all that stuff about going to the bank (as I'm sure the bank personnel would have no idea what it was all about).

It appears you are looking at the instructions for the CR1 packet 4, not the K1 packet 4.   Easy mistake as the links for instructions for K1 and CR1 are both on the same Webpage

 

The instructions for the K1 Packet 4 are located here:  https://th.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/90/k-packet-4-appointment-mar2018-english.pdf
