Visa Fee Bill Price Dropping To $405

by Chris Musillo

Immigrant visa fees always seem to be on the rise and so it is welcome news to hear that the Business Immigrant Visa Fee Bill price will be dropping from $720 to $405, a decrease of 44 percent.  The Fee Bill normally is paid during the National Visa Center stage of Consular Processing for overseas foreign-nationals seeking an immigrant visa.  Many healthcare workers process their green card cases at Consulates because of the unavailability of H-1B visas for certain occupations. 

This drop is Fee Bill price is great news for all EB-2 and EB-3 visa applicants and their family members.  The new lower Fee Bill price is not immediate operative.  It is expected to go into effect June 27, 2012 unless the Department of State receives negative comments.  The Fee Bill decrease is one-part of an overall suite of price changes at Consulates and Embassies.  Most of the other changes are slight increases in the price charged for other visa services.
