Immigrant Visa Fees 

All immigrant visa applicants must pay the visa application processing fee for the appropriate visa category.  Please click the following link for a schedule of fees: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/fees-visa-services.html#permanent.  Please note that many immigration-related forms and their associated fees are submitted directly to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and not to the Department of State.  Please click the following link for a list of USCIS forms and associated fees:  http://www.uscis.gov/forms

For applicants paying a fee at the U.S. Embassy on the day of their interview, please note that we accept CASH ONLY in either U.S. dollars or FCFA.  Please email the Embassy at ConsularLome@state.gov for the current U.S. dollar to FCFA exchange rate. 

NOTE: We do not accept U.S. dollar bills that were issued before 1997 or U.S. dollar bills that bear additional markings.  

USCIS Immigration Fee 

All individuals issued immigrant visas overseas must pay a $165.00 USCIS Immigrant Fee before traveling to the United States.  Only prospective adoptive parents whose child(ren) is/are entering the United States under either the Orphan or Hague Process, Iraqi and Afghan special immigrants who were employed by the U.S. government, returning residents, and those issued K visas are exempt from the new fee.  See the USCIS website for more details and contact information:  www.uscis.gov/immigrantfee.
