Application Fees

Nonimmigrant and immigrant visa application fees for certain visa categories changed in September 2014. All visa applicants must pay the fee amounts in effect on the day they pay, with the exception of Immigrant Visa application processing fees paid domestically to the National Visa Center (NVC), which will be effective as of the date of billing.

Except for the fiance, nonimmigrant visa application fee and boarding foils, all fees are payable at the consular section only. All fees can be paid in U.S. dollars or the equivalent in Polish currency at the Embassy’s exchange rate. They are payable in cash or by a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Novus/Discover or Diners only) for nationals of E.U. States. Checks are not accepted. None of the fees are refundable. Note: Applicants from non-E.U. countries may only pay in cash.

Current Embassy exchange rate can be found here.
