Visa fees for spouse

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ fam. I have a question in regards to Visa fees for my spouse. At the NVC level, I paid the AOS fees and the IV fees. My husband went through his interview and all went well. He was told by the CO that he will get a call from them. Today he received a call from the embassy asking him to pay Visa fees. I'm confused is the IV fees not the Visa fees?

How much are they requesting?

After the interview the only fee of which I am aware is the $220 fee which is paid at https://my.uscis.gov/uscis-immigrant-fee/

It is an online payment which can be paid either before or after arrival in the US.  It must be paid before an actual green card is produced.

It does unless they want to see proof of payment for some reason

Sounds fishy....I would demand something in writing from an official........

I assume they are holding his passport hostage.......

And that’s before they issue the visa?? Immigrant fee is paid after one gets back the passport with the visa. Looks like someone in the embassy wants to make a quick money.

That amount does not ring a bell / match with any fee that I know of. Email the official Embassy email stating you receive this call, ask them to verify. 

Thanks, I will email them right away.

Yep....and the immigrant fee is only $220............sounds like someone is greedy......a good con artist would have set the extortion fee at $220 to give it a look of legitimacy.

On his visa after he gets that back.

Mine was at the bottom of my visa interview letter from the NVC. Under the "Immigrant Visa Interview Details"
