SEVIS FEE is the first step of the F1 Student Visa Application process.
A student pays the $200 fee so that SEVIS can issue I20 and maintain records of students activities. Above we have listed all the various types of records maintinaed by SEVIS.
In order to pay the SEVIS Fee go to the above mentioned link.
Click on “Submit Form I-901 and Fee Payment”.
Fill the form which looks like the above image. Your name has to be as per the I20 name. SEVIS number is also given on your I20.
Keep several copies of the receipt with you. You need to take this document on the day of the Visa Interview and OFC appointment, which we’ll discuss later.
You have an option to pay offline by printing the form out and attaching a money order or a cheque and couriering it to SEVIS. Link: https://www.ice.gov/sites/default/files/documents/Document/2015/i901.pdf
