Monthly Feature! February’s most popular question is…

QUESTION.  I’ve booked a visa interview and paid the fee but now I can’t go to the U.S. as I planned.
Can I have a refund of the MRV (Machine Readable Visa) fee?
ANSWER. The MRV fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.

If your plans have changed and you are not planning to travel to the United States at this time, the fee is valid for 12 months from the date of payment.

You could use the fee if you wish to apply at a later date, provided it is within 12 months.
