Schedule of Fees for Consular Services, Department of State and Overseas Embassies and Consulates
Document Number: E7-24646
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-12-20
Agency: Department of State
This rule amends the Schedule of Fees for Consular Services. Specifically, it raises from $100 to $131 the fee charged for the processing of an application for a nonimmigrant visa (MRV) and Border Crossing Card (BCC) and increases the immigrant visa fee by $20.00. The Department of State is adjusting the fees as an emergency measure to ensure that sufficient resources are available to meet the costs of processing non-immigrant and immigrant visas in light of increased security measures put in place since 2004 and fee collection mandates on behalf of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
