The application price for petition-based nonimmigrant worker visas under the H, L, O, P, Q, and R categories will rise from $190 to $205.

The current application fee for those applying for speciality jobs (E category), treaty traders, investors, or investor visas is $315, up from the prior price of $205.

All other consular fees, however, will stay the same. No further fees will be assessed to those who have already paid a valid and non-expiring visa application fee but have not yet appeared for their visa interview or are waiting for case processing.

The price of visas is determined by an evaluation of service costs conducted annually, according to a statement from the US State Department. The majority of non-petition NIV costs last underwent an upgrade in 2012, and some more NIV costs did so in 2014.
