Application Fee: The fee that the U.S. embassy/consulate charges when you apply for a nonimmigrant visa. It is $265 and has to be paid in Rupee equivalent. This fee is non-refundable irrespective of whether visa is issued or not.

Fees have to be paid by separate Demand Drafts. DDs can be drawn on nationalized banks or local branches of foreign banks. DDs drawn on Co-operative Banks are not accepted.
