For a US student Visa, what is the application fee?

A student visa (F or M) is required to study in the United States. Foreign nationals may not study after entering on a visitor (B) visa or through the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), except to undertake recreational study (non-credit) as part of a tourist visit. For more information on the VWP, see Visa Waiver Program.

The application fee for a student visa (F-1 visa) to the United States can vary based on the country where the applicant applies. However, as of my last update, the standard application fee for a nonimmigrant visa application (including student visas) is $160 USD. This fee is subject to change and may vary based on exchange rates or specific agreements between the United States and the applicant’s country.

It’s essential for applicants to check the website of the U.S. embassy or consulate where they plan to apply for their student visa to confirm the current application fee and any additional fees or payment methods that may apply. The embassy or consulate’s website will provide specific instructions on how to pay the visa application fee and whether there are any waivers or exemptions available for certain applicants.
