Visa application processing fee

What are the current visa application fees?

The current fees for U.S. nonimmigrant visas in U.S. dollars per applicant are as follows:

  • Visa categories B, C, D, F, I, J, and M (tourists, study/exchange, business and transit visas): USD 160
  • Visa categories H, L, O, P, Q, and R (temporary workers): USD 190
  • Visa category K (fiancé visa): USD 265
  • Visa category E (trade and investor visa): USD 205

(as of September 25, 2017)

Since June 4, 2010, the formerly unified application fees for non-immigrant visas have been divided in accordance with the relevant visa category in order to take account of the different levels of effort and associated accounting costs.   This fee structure applies to applications submitted to all U.S. consulates.

Please note that the application fees may frequently be adjusted either upward or downward due to changes to the euro-dollar exchange rate.  Our agency will of course always keep you current on the latest visa application fees.
