CONSULAR FEE CHANGES EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 12, 2014

The Department of State published an interim final rule (IFR) in the Federal Register on August 28, 2014 announcing fee changes for certain nonimmigrant visa (NIV) applications, immigrant visa (IV) applications, administrative and citizens’ services.  The new fees will become effective 15 days after the rule was published, which will be on September 12, 2014.

For Immigrant Visa processing, the fees for family-sponsored immigrants and the domestic review of an Affidavit of Support will increase while all other immigrant and special visa processing fees will decrease.

Likewise, the fee for K or Fiancé(e) visas, a non-immigrant visa category processed by the Immigrant Visa Unit, will increase.

Additional information on these fee changes may be found on the Department of State’s website, http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/fees-visa-services.html

Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.
