NEFT stands for the National Electronic Funds Transfer system. It is the electronic funds transfer facility provided by most of the banks in India. You can make the payment by transferring the money directly from your bank account into the U.S. government account. Exact procedures for actually doing the funds transfer vary based on each bank. Various banks allow either online banking and/or mobile banking facilities. Using this option, you don’t have to visit the bank branch to make your USA visa fee payment. Most banks charge some additional fee for this convenience of NEFT for each transaction.

Follow steps 1 through 10, as mentioned in scheduling a USA visa appointment.
- After that, on the “Payment Confirmation Screen”, click on the link “Click Here For All Payment Options“. A new window will open.
- Click on the “Bank of America” logo under the “Electronic” section.
Overseas electronic funds transfers are not accepted (even if you have a Bank of America account in the U.S.). You can only make this payment if you maintain a Rupee bank account in India.
- A new browser window will open up with the instructions to make the transfer using NEFT.
Take the print out of the customized instruction pages.
- Pay attention to the “Unique Beneficiary Account Number” to which you will send the NEFT payment.
Sample number: TIER5730232729080
(Do NOT make a payment to this number. You must make payment only to YOUR unique number displayed).
The following details remain the same for everyone:
IFSC Code: BOFA0MM6205 (Bank of America N.A.)
Beneficiary Name: “BANA MUMBAI US VISA SFA”
The amount in INR will vary based on the number of applicants and the visa class they are applying for.
- IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU KEEP THE UNIQUE ACCOUNT NUMBER THAT YOU ACTUALLY USE TO MAKE YOUR NEFT PAYMENT. You must have this number as proof of payment in order to schedule your appointment. You must save this number, and it is your responsibility to do so. If you lose that number, you must make another payment.
