The fees for most categories of immigrant visas will change, while fees for non-immigrant visas largely remain the same.
The Bureau of Consular Affairs, which operates on a fee-for-services basis, says the increase seeks to recover, as far as possible, the cost of providing consular services through the collection of consular fees.
Although most categories of non-immigrant visa processing fees will remain the same, the fee for E-visas (treaty-traders and treaty-investors) will decrease and the fee for K visas, for fiancé(e)s of US citizens, will increase.
The fee charged for Border Crossing Cards for Mexican citizen minor applicants under the age of 15 will increase by $1.
For immigrant visa processing, the fee for family-sponsored immigrant visas will increase, as will the fee for domestic review of an Affidavit of Support.
All other immigrant and special visa processing fees that are changing will decrease.
