Our K1 fiance petition got approved and we also have a DS-160 application number and confirmation. 


We've tried to follow the necessary steps but we got stuck at trying to schedule an appointment online for an interview. We have tried online several times to schedule, however it has always given us the no available appointments.


I was wondering when is the payment usually made ? Is it before or after the scheduling of the appointment? How do you send the payment  via mpesa or postbank?  We have not made any payments, could this be the reason why we are not getting any appointments dates ?


We would like to send the $265 payment via M-Pesa however we do not know the number to which to send the payment, or do we need to go to the Postbank to get the payment information? 

How can we make sure that payment is attached to our application and schedule an appointment?


Any insight would be appreciated.

You have to pay first, before you can schedule an appointment. Note that sometimes there are no free spaces for interview appointments, though, and you can only check 8x or so per day, before the system notifies you that you refreshed the page too often. Then, you have to wait until the next day to get more chances to look at the open dates. They only do it 2-3 months in advance, so the dates tend to be gone quickly, at least for our consulate in Frankfurt, Germany. But eventually, you will get an appointment.

Unfortunately, I cannot help you with the other questions. Maybe someone else can help. I payed the visa fee via online banking. Don't forget to save the CGI number you'll get.
