Bank and Payment Options/Pay My Visa Fee

On this page:


Overview

In most cases, each visa applicant, including children, is required to pay a non-refundable, non-transferable Machine Readable Visa (MRV) application fee, whether a visa is issued or not. The visa application fee is determined by the type of visa for which you wish to apply. Generally, Malaysian citizens need to pay a fee for a visa to the United States.

  • If you are a citizen of a country participating in the Visa Waiver Program, please first confirm whether you need to apply for a nonimmigrant visa or not. Certain individuals may not need a visa, for example:
  • Individuals eligible under the Visa Waiver Program.
  • Individuals exempt from paying application fees, such as applicants for A or G visas, or participants in U.S. Government-sponsored J programs.
  • Individuals already holding valid visas for their intended purpose of travel.

Citizens of Canada or Bermuda (except in A, E, G, K or V visa categories)

If you do need to apply for a visa, please follow the instructions below for paying your visa application fee. For more information about fee exemptions, please visit this page.

Note: Applicants are limited to the number of times they can reschedule their appointments. Please plan accordingly so that you are not required to make another visa application fee. Visa application fees are nonrefundable.
