The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires the collection of a one-time fee of $200 from certain international students and visiting scholars. The fee is required to cover operational costs of the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). Each student or exchange visitor who is issued an initial Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 is responsible for paying this fee.
The SEVIS fee must be paid prior to visa application to the DHS in the United States. Proof of payment must be presented at the time an application is made for the visa. It cannot be paid at the Embassy or at a university.
To allow for adequate processing time the fee must be paid at least three business days prior to the date of the visa interview. The SEVIS fee is non-refundable. The fee must be paid to ensure that the payment can be deposited and recorded in SEVIS prior to the scheduled visa interview. The interviewing consular officer will confirm that the fee has been paid by accessing SEVIS.
