As of April 20, the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in India have raised VFS service charges for nonimmigrant visa, immigrant visa, and U.S. passport services. This increase in fees is due to the recently enacted 2006 Indian Finance Bill which increased tax rates applicable to taxable services.
Please note the new service charges:
• Nonimmigrant visa service charge – Rs. 281
• Immigrant visa service charge – Rs. 337
• U.S. passport service charge – Rs. 141
