U.S. Embassy Adjusts Consular Exchange Rate in India for Visa Fees

Starting April 23, 2012,  United States Consular Sections in India adjusted the consular exchange rate from INR 51 to INR 54 to the dollar.  This rate of change applies to all rupee-denominated costs of applying for visas and passports, including the nonimmigrant visa application fee paid at HDFC bank branches prior to the scheduling of visa appointments. The new application fee for nonimmigrant visas is INR 8640 (equivalent to $160 USD for non-petition based visa categories) and INR 10260 (equivalent to $190 USD for petition based visa categories).  A link to the new fee schedule can be found here.

Furthermore, VFS  announced that receipts issued by HDFC Bank prior to April 23, 2012 and are not more than a year old, will be honored.
