Nonimmigrant visa applicants must pay the machine-readable visa application fee (MRV fee) shown below. The fee is based the type of visa you are applying for.
The fees are as follows:
$140 – B1/B2, C1/D, F, J, and all other NIV categories not listed below (Visitor/Transit/Student)
$150 – H, L, O, P, Q, and R (Temporary Worker)
$350 – K (Fiancée)
$390 – E (Investor/Trader)
To pay the fee, the applicant must have his or her passport number available. The applicant’s passport number will be tied to the MRV fee paid at the bank.
There are three ways to pay the MRV fee:
1. Pay in cash at any branch of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI).
2. Pay through online bill payment option provided by BPI for their customers.
3. Online payment through Bancnet Visa application fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
No exceptions will be made to this rule. The fee is valid for one year after the date of actual payment; your interview must take place within that one year.
