Government fees and other common expenses for the fiancé visa application
The K-1 visa commonly referred to as a fiancé visa, enables a foreign national who is engaged to a U.S. citizen to enter the country, so they can get married (within 90 days after entering).
Immigration filing fees total $800 for a K-1 visa. Government fees for K-1 visa and adjustment of status total $2025. The “Adjustment of Status” paperwork is needed to change from a K-1 visa to a green card after the U.S. Citizen’s fiancé comes to the U.S. on their fiancè visa. This excludes the standard medical examination fee, which varies depending on the provider.

Potential Additional Costs
There are fiance visa costs to consider in addition to direct government fees and the cost of the medical examination:
Costs for vaccinations: If your medical examination calls for it, you may have to renew your immunizations before getting your finished medical examination report. Costs for vaccinations vary by provider, much as those for medical exams.
Costs for translation services: If any of the supporting papers for your K-1 visa application are in a language other than English, you must additionally submit a translation of each one that has been verified as correct by the translator. These services may cost anything from $20 to $40 for a certified translation of a one-page birth certificate.
Costs to gather your supporting documents: You will be required to provide digital or physical copies of supporting papers, such as a birth certificate and passport, as part of the green card application process. Additionally, you must bring the original copies to your last K-1 visa interview. For the issuance of official papers, government organizations often levy fees.
It’s OK to take your pictures, but hiring a photographer is often a good idea. The cost of professional photography will vary depending on the service provider. The U.S. government will want two current 2-inch-by-2-inch photos to confirm your identification and run background checks.
Go costs: The U.S. government will not cover any costs you pay to travel to the U.S. embassy or consulate for your medical examination or interview. The same holds if you visit many government offices to get formal documentation.
Postage costs to mail your Application: You will pay small fees at various points throughout the application process for a K-1 visa for postage and sending of your application and supporting papers.
