The Government of India has rationalized and revised the Visa fees for TOURIST and BUSINESS visas for U.S. nationals, effective from June 18, 2018.
Following the fee revision, a uniform rate of US$160.00 will be charged for Tourist and Business Visas for U.S. nationals, irrespective the duration of the visa and number of entries. The fee excludes service charges of US$ 17.00 levied by the outsourced Service Provider, Cox & Kings Global Services (CKGS) and US$ 3.00 charged towards ICWF fees.
Any Visa applications sent by Post/Courier, for which payments have been made online before June 15, 2018, but received by our outsourced agency, CKGS, on or after June 18, 2018, the new rates will not be charged. Any application for which payments are made by Money Order or deposited in CKGS on or after June 18, 2018, fees will be charged at the new rates, even if the form was filled up online earlier.
Visa fees in respect of all other categories, except Tourist and Business Visas, shall remain unchanged.
