Interview Stage Visa Cost

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey UKers!!!

So I know I have to phone the US embassy in London to pay for the visa over the phone but what is the TOTAL price of the visa?

Is it 350 dollars all together or are there some "hidden" fees in there?? Will there be anything I need to pay for at the actual interview?

You'll have to pay for the courier on the day (assuming visa is approved and you got a slip from the IO) - price for that depends on if you want it first thing in the morning or if you're happy to have it any time of day (paying extra might be worthwhile if it gets there in time before you have to head off to work). Payment is by credit card as far as I remember...

The price of the phone call is a hidden fee. 1.23/minute for them to take your money.
