SEVIS FeeQuad

In 2003, the U.S. government created the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) database in which all international students and exchange visitors must be registered. You must pay the I-901 SEVIS fee, which is used to administer and maintain this system, before you go to your visa interview at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy.

Note: The SEVIS fee is not the same as the visa application fee.

How to pay

There are a few options that you have to pay the I-901 SEVIS fee:

  1. Pay online at fmjfee.com with a credit or debit card.
  2. Use Western Union Quick Pay™.
  3. Use a check or a money order, which must be drawn on a U.S. bank.
