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.

Certain individuals may not need to pay an MRV fee, for example:

  • If you are applying for an A, G, or NATO visa for official travel, you do not need to pay the MRV fee
  • If you are applying for a J visa to participate in certain U.S. Government-sponsored programs, you do not need to pay the MRV fee

Certain individuals may not need a visa, for example:

  • 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 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.

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.

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

Fee Payment Options

    Cash at Bank

    Any nonimmigrant visa applicant can pay their visa application fee in cash at any Bank Pocztowy branch. The fee is payable in Polish Zloty (PLN). Before going to a Bank Pocztowy 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. You will be unable to pay your fee if you are not in possession of a valid deposit slip.

    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. Fee collection agents will NOT accept payments based on expired deposit slips. Upon receiving of your payment, Bank Pocztowy 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, however payment is made in PLN. 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.

    After you have paid the visa application fee, keep the Bank Pocztowy 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.

    Scheduling Your Interview

    Whether you schedule your appointment online or contact our call center, you will need the UID number printed on your receipt.

    Fee Payment Receipt

    To create 12 digit UID – please combine the 7 digits from the ID operacji ZOK: field (middle of receipt) and add it to the 5 digits YMMDD from Data operacji: field (left hand side of receipt).

    For example above
    ID operacji ZOK:1234567
    Data operacji: 2012.08.29
    Therefore UID = 123456720829

    You can schedule your interview after 12:00 the next business day after paying your visa application fee at a Bank Pocztowy branch.
