Important Notice! After making an over-the-counter payment for a nonimmigrant visa application fee at Post Fiji, you must wait to schedule your appointment; you may schedule your appointment at any time the following business day.

If you are making an online credit card payment, you may schedule your interview immediately.

Overview

Most applicants, including children, are required to pay a Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee to initiate their U.S. visa application. This US Government mandated fee is payable in the event a visa is issued or not.

Remember, the MRV fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that the correct receipt number is being entered into his/her profile. Applicants should first determine whether or not they require a visa to travel to the US before submitting their applications.

Examples of individuals that may not require a visa include, but are not limited to:

  • If you are applying for an A or G visa for official travel, you do not need to pay the MRV fee.
  • If you are applying for a J visa to participate in a U.S. Government-sponsored program, you do not need to pay the MRV fee.
  • If you already hold a valid visa for your intended purpose of travel, you may not need a visa.
  • If you are a citizen of Canada or Bermuda (but not applying for an A, E, G, K or V visa category), you may not need a visa.

If you do need to apply for a visa, please follow the payment instructions below. Applicants must make a successful payment before they are permitted to schedule their interview appointment. Applicants who do not pay the correct fee for their visa type, may be restricted from scheduling their interview.

Once the initial interview is scheduled, applicants are limited to the number of times they can reschedule their appointment. If you miss your scheduled appointment time, you may be required to pay an additional visa fee. Please plan accordingly so that you are not required to pay an additional visa application fee. Visa application fees are non-refundable.

Fee Payment Options

Please confirm whether or not you need to apply for a visa. Visa application fee paid is non-refundable and non-transferable. You may not need to apply for a U.S. visa if you already hold a valid U.S. visa or you are a national of a Visa Waiver Program participating country.

Payment in Person
Any nonimmigrant visa applicants can pay their visa application fee in cash at a Post Fiji location in Fiji.

Before going to a Post Fiji location, you must print the applicable U.S. visa application deposit slip available below on this page. Take the printed deposit slip with you to pay your fee at a Post Fiji location. If you do not have the deposit slip, you will have to return at a later time to pay the fee with the proper documentation. Present the fee collection slip to the designated Post Fiji customer service representative and they will indicate the correct amount to pay in Fijian Dollars.

Select the deposit slip that matches your visa application fee from the list below. Values are shown in U.S. dollars. This page has more information about the different visa application fees. Please note that the deposit slips are not compatible with the iPad and will not load correctly using the default Apple.pdf reader. The slips will load correctly on Apple computers if opened using Adobe Reader. If you cannot open or view the deposit slip, please download and install the latest version of Adobe Reader from the Adobe website. There is no fee to download or use Adobe Reader.

Note: If you are applying for a K visa, please pay your U.S. visa processing fee of US$265 at the U.S. Embassy/Consulate on the day of your interview.

After you have paid the visa application fee, keep the Post Fiji receipt for your records. It cannot be replaced if it is lost. You will not be able to schedule an appointment without your receipt number.
