US visa cost set to rise in 2008

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Starting next year (2008), Filipinos will have to shell out more money for US visas. The fee for a US non-immigrant visa will increase from US$100 to US$131 and for a US immigrant visa from US$335 to US$355.

For non-immigrant and immigrant visa applicants, those who paid the US$100 application fee before January 1 will be processed without further payment only if they appear for a visa interview before January 31. The increases apply to visa applicants worldwide and are due to new security-related costs, new information technology systems and inflation.
