Want more information about the SEVIS requirement?
Visa officials are required to verify your record in the SEVIS system before a visa can be approved. This is also true for any dependents. If the visa official is unable to access your record in SEVIS and you have a SEVIS I-20 or DS 2019, please contact the CIP by email, phone or fax to alert us to the problem.

The SEVIS I-901 fee is U.S. $200 and must be paid before your visa appointment. Make sure to keep your fee receipt. You will need to show this receipt during your visa interview.
