Government Fees


Government fees constitute the largest portion of the cost of U.S. immigration. Depending on which type of petition you are working on, there are fees from different government entities, all paid at different times during the process. These fees change regularly, and we do our best to keep these numbers as current as possible. This page only covers fees RapidVisa’s customers may encounter. For a full list of all fees, go here.
