Visa Fees in USA

In order to sit in an interview for US VISA, first students have to pay the visa fee to their nearest US Embassy. It can be either by cash or Demand Draft. In case of Demand Draft it must be favored 'US Embassy – Visa Fees'.

[Note: Bank must have to nationalize bank. No draft issued by the cooperative banks will be accepted.]

The visa fee supports the following payment types:

  • Application Charges: Usually this visa application processing fee is around USD $132 for the form DS-156, DS-157, DS 158.
  • SEVIS Fee: Usually $100 charged as a SEVIS fee.
  • VFS Service Fee: Its service charge is around $5. That includes $4 as a VFS fee and $1 as a transaction fee.

[Remember you will have to pay extra 12% for service tax and 0.36 % for Education Cess Tax with these fees and a photocopy of applicant's passport is required with that.]
