This is similar to Microsoft putting up their fees I think ~23%.
Surely the £ will not stay at this low exchange rate for too long

What has the £ got to do with the cost of USCIS visa fees, which are all priced in $?

Was thinking the same as you! :-S

Ouch, those price hikes are steep!

Oh well. Luckily for myself I will have most of the fees ticked off before that date.

I think it will only be removal of conditions and citizenship that will potentially affect me.

Am I seeing this right? It was $340 but now they want to charge $3,035 for the K1 Visa? What if they receive new applications before that date and obviously aren't finished, does that mean people will still only pay for the $340 fee? I just can't believe that hike though. That's a lot of money for people, who are already saving every penny they can for the other costs of emigrating and starting a fresh again in a new country...

No, you're not. The fees are all listed... I suggest you read the article again.

Perhaps a switch to decaf will help you... there are many find brands on the market.

I think you must be looking at the wrong column. I-129F goes from $340 to $535.

Effective Date - This rule is effective December 23, 2016. Applications or petitions mailed, postmarked, or otherwise filed on or after December 23, 2016 must include the new fee.

No. The new fee for filing an I-129F will be $535. If you scroll down to Table 1 there is a chart showing old fees and new fees.

And don't forget, these are just USCIS fees. The cost of the actual visa is determined by Department of State, not USCIS.

I'm such an idiot, I didn't see that chart in the first place. It's times like these I hate being Dyslexic, still no excuse for my stupidity though. Panic over then.
