Effective December 1, 2021, the following visa-related fee increases will apply:

  • Visa request fees for J-1s, H-1Bs, TNs, and E-3s will increase to $521 (from $300)

Visa requests that are conditionally approved by Academic HR on or after December 1 will be charged the new rates. These increases will appear on invoices issued on or after December 2, which reflect approvals that occurred in December.

Reimbursement may be requested by the department from J-1 exchange visitors for the $521 visa request fee and $105 J-1 amendment fee.
