US raises non-immigrant visa fees for foreign visitors
The US Department of State has announced an increase in certain nonimmigrant visa application processing fees and the Border Crossing Card for Mexican citizens aged 15 and over.
The fee for visitor visas for business or tourism, as well as other non-petition based NIVs such as student and exchange visitor visas, will increase from $160 to $185.
The fee for certain petition-based nonimmigrant visas for temporary workers will increase from $190 to $205, while the fee for treaty trader, treaty investor, and treaty applicants in a specialty occupation will increase from $205 to $315.
These increases are based on the actual cost of providing NIV services and are determined through an Activity-Based Costing methodology.
The US recognizes the importance of visas for work and tourism in its foreign policy and the critical role international travel plays in the US economy.
The new fees will be effective from May 30, 2023, and can be found on the Bureau of Consular Affairs website and on the websites of US embassies and consulates.
