Fee Payment for F, J and M Nonimmigrant Visa

If you're applying for an F-1, F-3, J-1, M-1 or M-3 US visa to attend a school or participate in an exchange visitor program in the USA, you are required to complete and submit form I-901 with your visa processing fee. If you live outside of the United States, making this payment successfully can be a complicated and tedious process. Fortunately, you have come to the right place. BUSAQ makes this process easy. Our specialists will guide you and help you complete the form and take your payment in local currency or US dollars. Your payment will be processed within 2-3 business days. BUSAQ charges a small processing fee ranging from 25 USD to 80 USD depending on the specific type of application and the fee involved.

To successfully process your application and fee payment, you must have copies of the following documents:

  • For F-1, F-3, M-1, and M-3  visa applicants you must have your a copy of your completed Form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status) issued to you by the school you're applying to attend
  • For J status visa applicants you must have a copy of your completed Form DS-2019 (Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor [J-1] Status) issued to you by the designated exchange visitor program in which you will participate
