The National Visa Center has made changes to their nonimmigrant and immigrant visa application fees for certain visa categories. The fee changes became effective September 12, 2014.
Fees in the categories which have decreased are not refundable.
Fees that will increase (nonimmigrant fees only): Visa fees paid will be accepted 90 days after the new fees go into effect, as follows:
- If the visa fee was paid before September 12, 2014, and the visa interview is on or before December 11, 2014, the difference between the new and old fee amounts does not have to be paid
- If the visa fee was paid before September 12, 2014, and the visa interview is on or after December 12, 2014, the difference between the old and new fee amounts will have to be paid–there are no exceptions.
The Immigrant Visa Application Processing Fee increased from $230.00 to $325.00, and the Affidavit of Support Fee increased from $88.00 to $120.00.
