SEVIS Fee Requirements Effective September 1, 2004

All prospective students seeking an F1 visa from the U.S. Consulate are required to pay a $200.00 SEVIS fee, also known as SEVIS I-901. This is a non-refundable fee to support the nonimmigrant reporting system.

SEVIS fee is mandatory by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Failure to pay this fee may cause denial of your F1 visa.

This fee is a one-time fee as long as the student maintains the F1 status in the United States .

To fulfill the SEVIS fee requirement, please complete the process below:

Complete the I-901 form on-line and use one of the following methods to pay the SEVIS fee.

  1. You can pay on-line by using:
    Visa, MasterCard or American Express cards or Debit cards. Credit or debit cards can only be used when paying the SEVIS I-901 fee and when filing the online I-901
  2. You can pay by International Money order or a Check drawn on a financial institution in the United States. The checks should be payable to “I-901 Student/Exchange Visitor Processing Fee”.

Mail your check with the coupon verification (if you applied on-line) or I-901 form (if you completed the I-901 paper application) to:
