    (c) Immigrant visa fees. Fees are prescribed by the Secretary of

immigrant visa. The application fee shall be collected prior to the 
visa interview and execution of the application. The issuance fee shall 
be collected after completion of the visa interview and prior to

collected for the application for or issuance of an immigrant visa is 
refundable only if the principal officer at a post or the officer in 
charge of a consular section determines that the visa was issued in 
error or could not be used as a result of action by the U.S. Government 
over which the alien had no control and for which the alien was not 
responsible.
