Non-immigrant Visa Application Fees May Increase

The Department of State recently published a proposed rule that would increase Non-immigrant visa application fees from $131 to $140. The proposed increase is due to the fact that the current fee does not cover the costs of visa processing and security enhancements. If this rule goes into effect, all J-1 applicants would have to pay the new fee.
