I think you need to go to their website, or look at the docmentation that comes with the application first.
The first step which is submiting the application with the photos and photocopies of your documents can be done thru the mail. Just do it certified mail.
That starts the process. Next thing is the finger prints, you will get an appoinment to a place near you and have that done.
Then you get an appointment for the interview (constitution test like questions) and you pass that and we go into the oath ceremony and you are done.
The only bad thing is that the process will take between 6 and 12 month. No way of making it faster than that. The good thing is because it is an election year, there might be a little more speed in the process.
The fee I believe you have right, but look at the latest application that you can download online for accurate information.
HTH... and ask any questions, if I know I will answer.
