Immigrant Visa Fees

Immigrant visa fees* and related fees, e.g. the application fee for a transportation letter or a waiver, can be paid with any credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, or Diner’s Club).  U.S. debit cards are also accepted if they carry the VISA symbol.  Please note that the credit or debit card must be in the name of the applicant or the accompanying parent or legal guardian if the applicant is under the age of 18.

*Some immigrant visa applicants may need to apply for a waiver or may need to be fingerprinted. The fees for this are additional to the regular application processing fee and can be paid in the same manner, as explained above.

While a credit card payment is preferred consular fees can also be paid cash in Euros. We do NOT accept U.S. dollars, checks, or PIN cards.  Please bring exact change to the appointment.

Please keep your wallet on you when entering our waiting room.
