Family-Based Immigrant Visa
Step 3: Pay Fees
The first thing you need to do after receiving your NVC Welcome Letter is pay your processing fees. There are two processing fees:
- Immigrant Visa Application Processing Fee
- Affidavit of Support Fee.
You will need a bank routing number and a checking or savings account number from a U.S. based bank.
Please note you cannot pay these two fees simultaneously; the online system will ask you to pay them one at a time.
After submitting your payments online, please allow up to 1 week for NVC to process your fees before continuing to the next step. You will not be able to access Form DS-260 until NVC has processed your payments.
