Changes in Fees for Visa Effective as of April 13 2012

As mentioned in the previous post, changes to visa application fee is effective as of April 13th 2012. Today, the Department of State, DOS, issued clarification as to fees paid prior to the changes to the fees. To summarize:

Fees that will decrease are not refundable 

If you paid a visa fee before April 13, 2012 and that fee decreased, DOS cannot give you a refund.

Fees that will increase (only nonimmigrant fees)

If you paid your visa fee before April 13, 2012 AND, your visa interview is on or before July 12, 2012, you do not have to pay the difference between fee amount.

If your interview is after July 13, 2012, you will be required to pay the difference between the old and new fee amounts – no exceptions.
