Payment Options on Implementation
In order to allow for fee collection by DHS under the constraints outlined in the preceding paragraph, this rule establishes the same fee payment methods discussed in the proposed rule. However, recognizing that aliens abroad will be required to pay the fee prior to obtaining an F, J, or M visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate, DHS has sought to build in as much flexibility as possible for the payment of the fee. Accordingly, DHS establishes two options for fee payment:
(1) The fee may be paid by mail, by submitting Form I-901, Fee Remittance for Certain F, M, and J Nonimmigrants, together with a check or money order drawn on a U.S. bank and payable in U.S. currency; or
(2) The fee may be paid electronically, by completing Form I-901 through the Internet and using a credit card.
These options are similar to the means currently used by nonimmigrants abroad to pay fees and expenses to a school or exchange visitor program sponsor, as well as methods used by aliens in other circumstances to pay fees to DHS for immigration purposes.
DHS acknowledges the commenters' concerns that some aliens may have difficulty making these payments. To alleviate these problems as much as possible, DHS will accept fee payment from a third party, either in the United States or abroad, using the methods outlined previously. This allows schools and exchange visitor program sponsors to pay for some or all of their participants, as they choose. Friends, family, or other interested parties may also make the fee payment on behalf of an alien.
Additionally, some commenters requested a bulk or batch fee payment system that would allow exchange visitor program sponsors to pay the fee for their participants. In response, DHS has established a bulk fee payment process that will allow an exchange visitor program sponsor to pay the fee for large numbers of individuals at one time. This automated fee payment system has been successfully pilot tested. At this time, only exchange visitor program sponsors have expressed an interest in making bulk payments
on behalf of affected aliens. As a result, DHS has only developed the bulk payment option for exchange visitor program sponsors. Although this regulation does not provide for a bulk payment option for schools enrolling F and M nonimmigrants, should schools express an interest in bulk payments in the future, DHS will assess the feasibility of developing this option for them.
DHS wishes to clarify that the requirement that a check or money order be drawn on a U.S. bank does not necessitate that the student or potential exchange visitor living outside the United States approach a U.S. bank to make a payment. As provided in 8 CFR 103.7(a)(1), an application fee submitted from outside the United States, “may be made by bank international money order or foreign draft drawn on a financial institution in the United States,” and payable in U.S. currency. Many foreign banks are able to
issue checks or money orders drawn on a U.S. bank. Accordingly, students or potential exchange visitors may obtain checks from banks chartered or operated in the United States, from foreign subsidiaries of U.S. banks, or from foreign banks that have an arrangement with a U.S. bank to issue a check, money order, or foreign draft that is drawn on a U.S. bank.
DHS also clarifies that any Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit card, whether issued in the United States or overseas, can be used to pay the fee over the Internet.
Payment Options in the Future
DHS will continue to explore alternate fee payment methods that might ease potential difficulties associated with fee payment from foreign countries. Most significantly, DHS is working closely with DOS to establish a pilot project for DOS collection of the SEVIS fee overseas. This pilot is being developed to explore the feasibility of SEVIS fee collection at both consular offices with outsourced fee collection using foreign financial institutions and at consular offices with internal cashiers. The pilot wil
l be conducted in a small number of consulates.
A number of issues surround the implementation of SEVIS fee collection at DOS consulates. It is important to note that fee settlement costs are distributed among all fee-payers. DHS will avoid implementing collection solutions that result in excessively high fee collection costs. The very real possibility of excessive costs associated with fee collections performed by some foreign financial institutions may make this method untenable in some locations. It is also possible that DHS and DOS will not be able t
o reach a negotiated agreement with foreign financial institutions to collect the fees in some locations where the Machine Readable Visa Fee is currently collected. The visa application fee is collected from all visa applicants every time they apply for a visa with no reductions or exceptions; the SEVIS fee is collected from a select group of nonimmigrants, does not apply each time a new visa is sought, and the amount varies depending upon several factors. Further, the SEVIS fee must be associated with an I
-901 form so that the payment can be linked to a specific nonimmigrant in the SEVIS system. Because these factors may complicate collection, some foreign financial institutions may not be interested in collecting the fee. Further difficulties may arise with foreign government regulations limiting the ability of the Consulate Offices to transfer funds to the United States.
Additionally, a needs analysis will be done to document the requirement for an alternative fee collection method in each individual country being considered. To avoid increased fee settlement costs that would be spread among all fee payers, the DOS pilot would be extended only post-by-post, country-by-country, on the basis of documented need. For these reasons, DHS will assess the feasibility, efficiency, and effectiveness of these pilot projects to determine whether and how SEVIS fee collection can occur t
hrough DOS consulates.
Two additional methods being explored are the use of payment clearinghouses and the establishment of direct contractual relationships with foreign financial institutions to allow the potential nonimmigrant to pay that financial institution in foreign funds, similar to the process used by DOS for visa fee payments. While DHS remains committed to providing many options for fee payment, DHS can only allow for two avenues for fee remittance at this time. The alternative types of fee remittance discussed in this
section will be fully explored and piloted as appropriate; however they will not be fully implemented without a cost-benefit analysis and a needs analysis. DHS will issue further guidance and a
notice relating to alternative collection methods when they become feasible.
Verification of Fee Payment
Several commenters expressed concerns that, due to the timeframes involved in the visa application process, requiring fee payment prior to visa issuance creates an undue burden on F, M, and J visa applicants. DHS wishes to clarify that fee payment does not need to be completed prior to scheduling an interview with the consulate, or any other activities undertaken prior to the in-person application process at the consulate. However, in order to assure that fee payment can be verified for purposes of visa iss
uance, the fee payment must be processed at least 3 business days prior to the date upon which the alien reports to the consulate to submit the visa application and undergo a visa interview. For nonimmigrants paying the fee electronically using the Internet, and who choose to rely on electronic fee verification at the consulate, the fee must be submitted at least 3 days in advance of the interview. However, a nonimmigrant paying the fee electronically by using the Internet is able to print out a receipt at
the time of fee payment, and will be able to use that printed fee receipt for immediate verification of payment. For nonimmigrants paying the fee by mail, the fee must be submitted in a manner that assures arrival at the DHS address listed on the Form I-901 at least 3 business days before the scheduled interview. This timeframe is also required for aliens who are exempt from the F, M, or J visa requirement, as described in section 212(d)(4) of the Act (e.g., Canadians). For the fee to be verified electronic
ally, the nonimmigrant must pay the fee either electronically via the Internet or by mail so that it arrives at the address listed on the I-901 form at least 3 business days prior to applying for admission at a U.S. port-of-entry. Again, a nonimmigrant paying electronically using the Internet who is able to print out the receipt at the time of fee payment will immediately be able to use that printed fee receipt for verification of payment.
Other commenters expressed concern that the use of paper receipts would lead to fraud. DHS acknowledges this concern, but also must make receipts available to nonimmigrants because the statute requires that nonimmigrants be able to present proof of fee payment before being granted certain benefits, such as admission, a visa, or change of status. At this time, certain SEVIS users (e.g., DHS service centers processing change of status requests, SEVP telephone hotline) will be able to electronically verify fee
payment status for nonimmigrants. DHS is working with DOS to finalize the interface that will allow consular officers overseas to see fee payment status electronically in the DOS data management system. Unfortunately, not every DOS consulate and embassy is anticipated to have electronic fee verification upon the effective date of this final rule. However, DHS believes that if fee collection were delayed until such time as paper receipts can be eliminated this would be inconsistent with Congressional statem
ents favoring expeditious implementation of a SEVIS fee, and also with the Congressional requirement that nonimmigrants be able to present proof of fee payment before receiving benefits. See Visa Waiver Permanent Program Act of 2000 404(6), Public Law 106-396, 114 Stat 1637 (October 30, 2000); 8 U.S.C. 1372(e)(5). Therefore, at this time, DHS will issue an official paper receipt acknowledging every payment regardless of payment method used. The paper receipt will be mailed or sent via express delivery servi
ce to the address provided on the Form I-901. Additionally, anyone who submits an individual fee electronically will be able to print out an electronic receipt immediately at the time of payment for use pending the mail delivery of the official paper receipt. Exchange visitor program sponsors who submit Form I-901s and pay the fee via the bulk filing process will receive receipts via express delivery for distribution to their program participants.
While DHS will continue to provide a paper fee receipt, consular officials will use the DOS system to verify fee payment when validating Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 information, wherever possible. Even in cases where DOS can generally use the system to verify fee payment, the paper receipts will continue to serve as a secondary means of fee verification. Paper receipts will serve to assist students in demonstrating that the fee has been paid. However, a paper receipt is not required for the visa interview, ad
mission at the port-of-entry, or any other part of the SEVIS process when proof of payment can be verified electronically. This dual system will ensure that, in instances where paper receipts sent by mail are either delayed in transit or not received at all, the issuance of the nonimmigrant visa will proceed unimpeded; additionally, in instances where paper receipts are presented as proof of fee payment, the electronic records will serve as fraud prevention. As part of the regulatory implementation and duri
ng this initial period of dual paper and electronic fee payment verification, DHS will also initiate and maintain a telephone hotline to be used by DOS consular officers, DHS inspectors at ports-of-entry, and DHS officers adjudicating change of status cases at service centers as a backup means to allow these officials to verify the electronic record of fee payment. This dual process, in which paper receipts may be relied upon for fee verification until electronic verification is available at every consulate
, is necessary to assure a timely and effective implementation of the fee payment validation process. DHS may issue a notice in the
to eliminate the paper receipt at some time in the future, if it has been clearly demonstrated that it is no longer necessary. In summation, non-immigrants affected by this rule are encouraged to present a paper receipt in the following cases:
Nonimmigrants applying for an F, M, or J visa abroad should present a paper receipt to verify fee payment until such time that all consular officers can electronically verify fee payment. DHS will inform all schools and program sponsors when an electronic fee verification capability has been established at all consulates.
Nonimmigrants exempt from the visa requirement (pursuant to section 212(d)(4) of the Act) should present a paper receipt to verify fee payment at the port-of-entry, prior to being admitted to the United States as an F, M, or J nonimmigrant, although all DHS inspectors should be able to electronically verify fee payment if a paper receipt is not available.
Nonimmigrants applying for a change of status to F, M, or J from within the United States will not be required to send the paper receipt with their change of status application. Rather, the adjudicating officer will access SEVIS to verify payment of the fee. However, students and exchange visitors should note that if the adjudicating officer does not find verification of fee payment in SEVIS, the applicant will receive a request for evidence from the service center and the applicant may be required to submi
t a paper receipt in response to this request.
The I-901 Form
Finally, in response to the notice published in the
(68 FR 59800) on October 17, 2003, some commenters expressed concern about the Form I-901, Fee Remittance For Certain F, J, and M Nonimmigrants. Commenters were concerned that a fee payment was linked to a single SEVIS identification number, since a nonimmigrant may apply to more than one school or exchange visitor program, and, therefore, may have multiple I-20s or DS-2019s with multiple SEVIS identification numbers. DHS clarifies that fee verification will allow for a fee payment made on one SEVIS identi
fication number to be applied to another SEVIS identification number issued to the same individual. Nonimmigrants are strongly encouraged to bring proof of both SEVIS identification numbers to the consulate or port-of-entry when payment has been made on a SEVIS identification number that is different than the one being used to obtain a visa or entry. DHS notes that if a new fee payment is required, as explained fully below, it must be paid, regardless of payments made on the same or different SEVIS identifi
cation numbers. In the future, multiple SEVIS identification numbers for a single nonimmigrant are likely to be augmented with the unique biometric identifier used by the United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology Program (US-VISIT). This will enable positive matches where more than one record exists for a single person.
In response to comments, several minor changes are being made to the I-901 form. The titles for the name blocks are being further clarified. DHS is amending the instructions to clarify that a credit card may be used to pay the fee when the Internet version of the form is used. In addition, DHS is changing the form so that an “N” will automatically populate the first space of the SEVIS identification number to help prevent data entry errors. And finally, DHS is adding a street address to the form to allow fo
r courier delivery of the form and payment to DHS.
Fee Exemption and Reduction
IIRIRA section 641provides that an alien seeking J-1 status to participate in an exchange visitor program that is sponsored by the Federal government is exempt from paying a fee. Several commenters requested clarification on how to determine which programs the Federal government sponsors. DHS clarifies that those potential J-1 exchange visitors exempt from the fee as participants in a Federal government sponsored exchange visitor program are those participating in an exchange visitor program with a program
identification designator prefix of G-1, G-2, or G-3.
Commenters suggested that other students and/or exchange visitors should be exempt from the fee. Similarly, a number of commenters suggested that the fee be reduced below $100 for other programs to mirror the reduction Congress expressly provided to certain J-1 participants, including lower fees for short-term English language programs, for all English language programs, for some or all short-term programs, for part-time and full-time commuter students, and for secondary school students. As noted in the 200
3 proposed rule, Congress specifically exempted from the SEVIS fee only J-1 nonimmigrants who are participating in an exchange visitor program sponsored by the Federal government, and explicitly reduced it only for certain other J-1 nonimmigrants. DHS interprets the Congressional mandate such that no other groups of nonimmigrants should be exempted from the SEVIS fee or have a reduced SEVIS fee based upon the principle of expressio unius: when one or more things of a class are expressly mentioned, others of
the same class are necessarily excluded.
Additionally, DHS cannot adopt the suggestion made by some commenters, that secondary school students and exchange visitors should be exempt from the fee payment because they were not initially required to be tracked in SEVIS. DHS is requiring that all elementary and secondary non-immigrant students on F-1 and J-1 visas be tracked in SEVIS, based upon amendments to section 641(e)(1) of IIRIRA made by section 416 of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept an
d Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT) Act of 2001, Public Law 107-56, 115 Stat 272 (October 26, 2001). Since these students are required to be tracked in SEVIS and are not expressly exempted from paying fees by Congress, DHS requires fee payment from them.
The Frequency of the Fee
In the 2003 proposed rule, DHS suggested that aliens who paid the fee and were denied a visa would not have to pay another fee to apply for the same visa classification for a period of 9 months, and specifically sought comments on this timeframe. The majority of commenters felt that this timeframe should be extended to 12 months to accommodate the academic and program-specific annual calendars. This suggestion was accepted and adopted in this final rule.
Although DHS provided an explanation of when a new fee payment would be required in the 2003 proposed rule, several commenters requested a more detailed clarification. In the following paragraphs, DHS re-states and further clarifies exactly when a fee is initially required, and when an additional fee payment would be subsequently required by the same individual. The SEVIS fee is a one-time fee for each nonimmigrant program in which the student or exchange visitor participates. For purposes of this fee, a “s
ingle program” for an F or M student generally extends from the time that the student is granted a particular nonimmigrant status, until such time that the nonimmigrant falls out of status, changes status, or departs the United States for an extended period of time. For a J exchange visitor, a single program is defined by the category and/or sponsor at the time of initial program participation, and extends until a change of category, a transfer from a fee-exempt sponsor to a non-fee-exempt sponsor, or until
such time as the nonimmigrant falls out of status or changes status. In general:
An F or M student will be required to pay only one fee if he/she maintains continuous status in a single visa classification, or if he/she is granted a reinstatement to student status in a timely manner following a violation of status;
A J exchange visitor will be required to pay only one fee if he/she maintains status while participating in a single exchange visitor program, or if he/she resumes status within the same program following a violation of status;
A student or exchange visitor will be required to pay a new fee if he/she violates status and cannot or does not resume status in a program, in accordance with 8 CFR 214.2 (f)(16) and (m)(16) or 22 CFR 62.45, and subsequently returns to the United States to participate in another program;
A student or exchange visitor will be required to pay a new fee if he/she wishes to change to another student or exchange visitor status, unless explicitly exempt; and,
An exchange visitor will be required to pay a new fee prior to applying for a change of category.
This final rule further clarifies that an F or M student will not be required to pay a new fee upon transfer to a new school, extension of stay, change in educational level, when obtaining a new visa for re-entry for program continuation, upon a temporary absence of less than 5 months, or upon a period of approved absence in which the student is engaged in overseas study as a part of his/her U.S. educational program requirements. Further, a student will not have to pay a new fee if he/she falls out of statu
s and files for reinstatement prior to the presumptive ineligibility deadline set forth in 8 CFR 214.2(f)(16)(i)(A) or (m)(16)(i)(A). An exchange visitor will not generally be required to pay a new fee upon transfer between programs within the same exchange visitor category. However, an exchange visitor that transfers from a fee-exempt program to a non-fee-exempt program under the same exchange visitor category, e.g., a program with a prefix of G-1, G-2 or G-3, to another program with a program prefix that
is not G-1, G-2 or G-3, but is within the same program category (e.g., research scholar), will be required to pay the fee upon transfer. Further, as previously stated, a change of J-1 exchange visitor category will require payment of a new fee. An intending J-1 nonimmigrant will be required to pay a new fee if, after completion of an exchange visitor program, he/she wishes to return to the United States to begin a new program, even if it is in the same category. An exchange visitor will not be required to p
ay a new fee if he/she falls out of valid program status due to a minor or technical infraction. However, an exchange visitor will be required to pay the SEVIS fee prior to applying for reinstatement under 22 CFR 62.45 with DOS.
As previously noted, this final rule extends the period of time from 9 months to 12 months during which an alien does not need to repay the fee when re-applying for the same category of visa after initial denial. Additionally, DHS clarifies that this 12-month exemption applies to a student or exchange visitor who has been denied a change of status within the United States, and whose application is subsequently re-opened and approved. However, DHS wishes to clarify that if a visa is denied for a particular J
-1 exchange visitor category, and the alien is applying for a visa in a different J-1 category, the alien will have to pay a new fee in conjunction with that visa application, even if the second application is made within the 12-month period identified previously. This restriction on J-1 applications also applies to applications for change of status to a J-1 exchange visitor program.
Where an F or M nonimmigrant is applying for reinstatement to student status, and has been out of status for a period that exceeds 5 months at the time of filing, the nonimmigrant will be required to pay a new fee to DHS prior to the adjudication of the reinstatement request. This 5-month time limit is set in accordance with the 5-month presumptive ineligibility deadline at 8 CFR 214.2(f)(16)(i)(A) and (m)(16)(i)(A). Similarly, pursuant to 22 CFR 62.45, where an exchange visitor applies for reinstatement af
ter a substantive violation or after falling out of his/her valid J program status for longer than 120 days but less than 270 days, the exchange visitor will be required to pay a new fee prior to applying with DOS for reinstatement.
A new fee would also be required if an F, M, or J nonimmigrant changes to a non-student/exchange visitor visa classification and then wishes to return to the previously held F, M, or J status. Finally, a new fee is needed if an alien re-applies for the same visa status or for the same change in status more than 12 months after a denial is issued either overseas at a U.S. embassy or consulate, or within the United States.
The following charts outline who is exempt from paying a fee, who is required to pay a fee and when a fee payment is required, and who may pay a reduced fee:
--Fee payment not required if applicant is:
A continuing F, M, or J nonimmigrant who maintains that status, and whose initial Form I-20 or DS-2019 was issued before September 1, 2004, as evidenced by their SEVIS record and the issuance date on their form.
An F-2, J-2, or M-2 dependent .
A J-1 participant in an exchange visitor program sponsored by the Federal government. A program sponsored by the Federal government is identified by a program designation prefix of G-1, G-2, or G-3 .
An F-1, F-3, J-1, M-1, or M-3 nonimmigrant applying for a visa to return to the United States as a continuing student or a continuing participant of an exchange visitor program.
This provision applies only to nonimmigrants returning to the United States to resume participation in a program that was previously begun, in which he or she has maintained status, and which has not yet been completed.
This includes F or M nonimmigrants who will return as continuing students after a temporary absence from the United States for a period of less than 5 months in duration.
This provision also includes F or M students returning as continuing students after working towards completion of the U.S. program in authorized overseas study.
An F-1 or F-3, nonimmigrant maintaining continuous status and changing educational levels. Examples include F students:
Moving directly from high school to college.
Moving directly from a masters degree program to a doctoral program.
An F-1, F-3, M-1, or M-3 nonimmigrant transferring between approved schools at the same educational level.
A J-1 nonimmigrant transferring between programs in the same exchange visitor category where no differential fee exists. Examples include transfers:
Between two fee-exempt programs (a transfer between G-1, G-2, or G-3 programs).
Between two non-fee-exempt programs.
From a non-fee-exempt program to a fee-exempt program (G-1, G-2, or G-3 program).
A nonimmigrant applying for a change of classification from within the United States between an F-1 and F-3 status, or between M-1 and M-3 status.
An F-1, F-3, J-1, M-1, or M-3 nonimmigrant requesting/applying for an extension of stay in a single program.
“Extension” for purposes of this example applies to students who have maintained participation in a program when additional time is needed for program completion.
An alien who paid an initial fee when seeking an F-1, F-3, M-1, or M-3 visa from an embassy or consulate abroad, was denied a visa, and is applying again for a visa for the same type of program within 12 months of the initial denial.
An alien who paid an initial fee when seeking a J-1 visa from an embassy or consulate abroad, was denied a visa, and is applying again for a visa in the same J-1 exchange visitor category within 12 months of the initial visa denial.
This provision does NOT apply to J-1 applicants who initially applied for a fee exempt program (e.g., a program with a program identifier designation prefix of G-1, G-2 or G-3), and who, after visa denial, apply for a program that is not fee exempt.
A nonimmigrant who has applied for a change of status in the United States to an F, M, or J classification, had the initial application for the change of status denied for a reason other than failure to pay the SEVIS fee, and is applying for a motion to re-open the case within 12 months of the original denial.
Pursuant to SEVP discretion, certain nonimmigrants changing between F and M status due solely to a change in school classification during their course of study.
An F or M nonimmigrant applying for reinstatement of student status, who has not been out of student status for a period exceeding the presumptive ineligibility requirement set forth in 8 CFR 214.2(f)(16)(A) or 214.2(m)(16)(A).
--Fee payment of $100 is required if the applicant is:
An alien seeking an initial F-1, F-3, J-1, M-1, or M-3 visa from an embassy or consulate abroad for initial attendance at a DHS-approved school or initial participation in a Department of State-designated exchange visitor program that is subject to the $100 fee amount. (Specific J-1 programs not subject to the $100 fee are described in both Chart I and Chart III.)
The fee must be processed 3 business days before the consular interview, unless the applicant has a printed receipt from Internet payment. Fees will not be payable at the consulate.
An alien exempt from the visa requirement described in section 212(d)(4) of the Act, who will be applying for admission at a United States port-of-entry to begin initial attendance at a DHS-approved school or initial participation in a Department of State-designated exchange visitor program that is subject to the $100 fee amount. (Specific J-1 programs not subject to the $100 fee are described in both Chart I and Chart III.) Such fee must be processed at least 3 business days prior to making an application
for admission at the port-of-entry, unless the applicant has a printed receipt from Internet payment. Fees will not be payable at the port-of-entry.
An alien in the United States seeking a change of status to F-1, F-3, J-1, M-1, or M-3 . Exceptions are listed in Chart I for instances not requiring fee payment.
A nonimmigrant who was initially granted J-1 status as a participant in an exchange visitor program sponsored by the Federal government, (i.e., with a program identifier designation prefix of G-1, G-2, or G-3), and who is now transferring to another J-1 program in the same category that is not similarly sponsored (i.e., has a program identifier designation prefix other than G-1, G-2, or G-3).
A J-1 nonimmigrant who is applying for a change of category within the United States, with the exception of a change to a J-1 program specifically requiring an alternate fee, as indicated in Chart III, or a program whose program identifier designation prefix is G-1, G-2, or G-3.
A J-1 nonimmigrant who is applying for reinstatement after a substantive violation, or who has been out of program status for longer than 120 days but less than 270 days during the course of his or her program.
An F or M nonimmigrant applying for reinstatement of student status, who has been out of student status for a period exceeding the presumptive ineligibility requirement set forth in 8 CFR 214.2(f)(16)(A) or 214.2(m)(16)(A).
An F or M nonimmigrant, including an F-3 or M-3 nonimmigrant, who has been absent from the United States for a period exceeding 5 months, was not working towards completion of curriculum in authorized overseas study, and now wishes to re-enter for a new F or M program of study in the United States.
--Fee payment is reduced to $35 if applicant is:
A J-1 nonimmigrant applying for participation in a summer work/travel, au pair, or camp counselor program.
