SEVIS Fee Procedures
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) charges a fee of $200 for F-1 Students for the operational costs of the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). This fee is in addition to the visa application fee imposed by the U.S. Department of State. (F-2 dependents do NOT pay the fee.)
The fee must be paid before you go for your visa interview or, if you are visa exempt (see below), it must be paid before you cross the border to the United States.
The fee can be paid in 3 different ways:
A third party, such as a family member or friend, may also pay the fee for you. Online payment is recommended because you will be able to print a receipt immediately, which you can take to your visa interview. If paying online, you MUST have a printer connected to your computer, because you cannot save the information to print later.
