Visa Application Fee (MRV fee)

Nonimmigrant Visa (NIV) applicants are required to pay the machine-readable visa (MRV) fee on the day of the scheduled interview at the Embassy. 

The actual amount of the visa application depends on the visa for which you are applying.

 Visa Type Fee
E – Traders/Investors visas 299 Euros
Petition based visas (H, O, P, L, Q, R) 195 Euros
All other visa classes
(including tourists, sailors and transit visas)
176 Euros


The MRV fee can only be paid in Euros. The fee is paid at the time of the interview in cash only.  Please bring the exact change as we cannot guarantee we will have change on hand.
