Any applicant who fails to follow these instructions will be ineligible for their scheduled appointment.  Applicants will receive a receipt for payment at their visa interview.

Additional fees, such as reciprocity fees, will continue to be accepted only at the US Embassy once a visa has been approved

Visa Issuance Fees:  On basis of reciprocity, citizens of Comoros, as well as other nations, may be charged a visa issuance fee in addition to the visa application fee. This fee varies depending on the type of visa and number of entries.  For more information about the fees for different nationalities and visa types, see the Reciprocity Fee Table.
