AIT Announces Nonimmigrant Visa Processing Fee Increase
The American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) announces that, due to the recent shift in the exchange rate between the U.S. Dollar and the New Taiwan Dollar, and in keeping with the worldwide U.S. nonimmigrant visa processing fee, AIT will increase its visa processing fee effective September 29, 2008 from NT$4,100 to NT$4,300.
All applicants for nonimmigrant visas who pay the visa processing fee on or after September 29 must show a receipt for NT$4,300. Applicants who paid the visa processing fee before September 29 may still use the receipt for NT$4,100.
The worldwide U.S. nonimmigrant visa processing fee remains at US$131. Applicants who paid the previous fee of US$100 prior to January 1, 2008 must pay an additional NT$1,000.
