Where to File
File Form I-129F at the USCIS Dallas Lockbox facility:
$340. (There is no fee for petitions for K-3 status based on an immigrant petition filed by the same U.S. citizen.)
There is an error on the current version of the Form I-129F. In Part 3, "Other Information", the paragraph immediately before question 4 incorrectly describes the circumstances in which a written request for a waiver of the IMBRA filing limitations is required. You will find the correct description in the Instructions for Petition for Alien Fiancé(e), under the topic of "Requirements and Documents":
2. What filing limitations does IMBRA place on K-1 nonimmigrant petitioners?
You must apply for a filing limitations waiver if any of the following apply to you:
1. You have previously filed K-1 petitions for two or more beneficiaries; or
2. You previously had a K-1 petition approved, and less than two years have passed since the filing date of that petition.
If either of these statements is true, you must submit a written request for a waiver with your petition. Refer to the filing instructions for further details regarding the waivers.
