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 a visa processing fee that is payable whether or not a visa is issued.

The MRV fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. 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 already hold a valid visa for your intended purpose of travel
  • If you are a citizen of Canada or Bermuda (but not applying for an A, E, G, K or V visa category)

 

Examples of individuals that may not need to pay the MRV fee include, but are not limited to:

  • If you are applying for an A or G visa for official travel
  • If you are applying for a J visa to participate in a U.S. Government-sponsored program (programs beginning with G-1, G-2, G-3, G-7)

 

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 an 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 the MRV fee again in order to schedule another interview. Please plan accordingly so that you are not required to pay an additional visa application fee. Visa application fees are non-refundable.

Cash at Bank - Banco de Occidente

You can pay your nonimmigrant visa application fee with cash at Banco de Occidente in Honduras. Before going to a branch, print a copy of the applicable U.S. visa application deposit slip available below on this page.

DO NOT print multiple copies of the same deposit slip for several transactions. You must have a unique deposit slip for each transaction.

Take the printed deposit slip with you to the bank. If you do not have the deposit slip or if you have multiple copies of the same receipt for several transactions, you will have to return at a later time to pay the fee with the proper documentation. Failure to follow these instructions can lead to delays in your ability to schedule an appointment. Upon receiving of your payment, Banco de Occidente will issue you a receipt. Save your receipt. It cannot be replaced if it is lost. You will not be able to schedule an appointment without your receipt number.

Select the deposit slip that matches your visa application fee from the list below. This page has more information about the different visa application fees.
