embassyThe United States Embassy has announced that fees for Consular Services will change as of September 12 this year. According to the release, the new changes mean that fees for most categories of immigrant visas will change, while fees for nonimmigrant visas largely remain the same.


The fee for processing an application for Renunciation of U.S. Citizenship is increasing to reflect the true cost of providing this service. The release adds that the changes are being made in an effort to recover the cost of providing these services. It further states that, quote, “although most categories of nonimmigrant visa processing fees will remain the same, the fee for E visas (treaty-traders and treaty-investors) will decrease by $65, and the fee for K visas (for fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens) will increase by $25.


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,” end of quote. In addition, the fee for processing renunciation of citizenship, which had previously been subsidized, is now reflective of the true cost as the process is extremely costly, requiring U.S. consular officers overseas to spend substantial amounts of time to accept, process, and adjudicate cases. For further information the public can visit www.regulations.gov to view the interim final rule. The public can leave comments until 60 days after publication, after which the Department will consider the public comments, and the published final rule will include the Department’s response to any comments received. The public can also find the new fee information on the Bureau of Consular Affairs website, travel.state.gov, and on the U.S. embassy website at http://belize.usembassy.gov/visas.html.
