[INFOGRAPHIC] How Much Can a K1 Fiancé(e) Visa Cost?

They say you can't put a price on love but we can identify an amount you need to bring your Filipino fiancé(e) to the United States of America.

Aside from the long waiting time, you should also take into consideration the amount of time you need to save up for the total cost of a K1 visa because it is not cheap.

I know this firsthand because my husband and I processed my K1 visa from January to July 2017. We were preparing as early as November 2016 for this because we wanted to make complete this step leading to being together.

I went researching online on what is an accurate total for a K1 fiancé(e) visa application but found no detailed breakdown, so here is a breakdown of what we paid for.

My husband paid for 90% of this while I covered the smaller expenses, so props to him for sacrificing money to finish this process.

Please note that the SLEC Medical Examination already increased to Php17,025 and I already had a passport, which can cost Php950, before we did this process. The breakdown below is NOT based on all possible expenses but on actual ones we spent on.

How about you? Have you gone through this process? Was the amount you spent almost the same as what we did?  Let me know in the comment section below. :)
