Pay My Visa Fee

Attention: Information about New Visa Fees

Effective April 13, 2012, the Department of State adjusted visa processing fees. Although most categories of nonimmigrant visa processing fees increased, the fee for E visas (treaty-traders and treaty-investors) and K visas (for fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens) decreased.

Visa fees are valid for scheduling an appointment for one year from the date of payment.

For all visa categories where the fees increased, payments made prior to April 13, 2012 are valid for 90 days. This means that applicants who paid the fee prior to April 13, 2012 must schedule their visa interview appointment no later than July 12, 2012. If not, they will have to pay the difference between the old and the new rate to the Consular cashier on the date of the interview.

For all visa categories where the fees are decreasing, no refunds for the difference between the old and new rates will be available for applicants paying prior to the April 13, 2012 decrease.

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.

Fee Payment Options

Bank Payment Process Change: Review the new instructions for paying at the bank. Starting September 1, 2012, it will be necessary to bring the printed deposit slip to the bank for payment. The bank will not process your visa fee without the correct deposit slip.

    Cash at Bank

    You can pay your nonimmigrant visa application fee with cash at any Standard Chartered Bank. Before going to the bank, 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.

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

    If you print a deposit slip in advance of the day in which you plan to make your payment, please take note of the expiration date on the deposit slip. If the expiration date passes prior to using the slip to make your payment, simply return to this site and re-click the appropriate link below to generate a new deposit slip. Bank agents will NOT accept payments based on expired deposit slips. Upon receiving of your payment, bank 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. Values are shown in U.S. dollars and native currency. This page has more information about the different visa application fees.

    After you have paid the visa application fee, keep the BANK 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

    Online Payment

    If you have an account with Standard Chartered Bank you may choose to pay your visa application fee online using Standard Chartered Bank's can online bill pay service.

If you are paying for more than one applicant, please DO NOT make a lump sum payment for all the applicants. A UID/receipt number is required for each visa application fee payment for EACH applicant for scheduling an appointment. After you have paid the visa application fee, please keep the Standard Chartered Bank fee receipt for your records.
