Bank and Payment Options/Pay My Visa Fee

On this page:


Overview

Most applicants, including children, are required to pay a Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee to initiate their U.S. visa application. This US Government-mandated fee is a visa processing fee that is payable whether or not a visa is issued.

The MRV fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. Applicants should first determine whether or not they require a visa to travel to the US before submitting their applications.

Examples of individuals that may not require a visa include, but are not limited to:

  • If you already hold a valid visa for your intended purpose of travel
  • If you are a citizen of Canada or Bermuda (but not applying for an A, E, G, K or V visa category)

 

Examples of individuals that may not be required to pay an MRV fee include:

  • If you are applying for an A or G visa for official travel
  • If you are applying for a J visa to participate in a U.S. Government-sponsored program (programs beginning with G-1, G-2, G-3, G-7)

 

If you do need to apply for a visa, please follow the instructions below for paying your visa application fee. For more information about fee exemptions, please visit this page.

Remember: Applicants are limited to the number of times they can reschedule their appointments. Please plan accordingly so that you are not required to pay another visa application fee. Visa application fees are nonrefundable

Instructions to Pay Your Visa fee

In Lithuania you may pay your visa fee online or in person at any bank. You must first register on the applicant site and choose the ‘schedule your appointment’ option to access the payment option details. See below for the steps.

Step 1

Log-in to our online applicant system and create a profile. This will ensure the proper amount is paid and activated in timely manner. Values are shown in U.S. Dollars (USD); however the Fee payable is in Euros (EUR). This page has more information about the different visa application fees.

Step 2

Click on Schedule My Appointment option on the left-hand side of your screen. Complete Steps for Visa Type, Post, Visa Category and Visa Class.

Step 3

Once you are on the Payment screen, click on Payment Options to pick your form of payment. To review further payment details read the Fee Payment Options sections below.

The EURO amounts are based on the consular currency exchange rate determined by the U.S. Department of State. Applicants who do not pay the correct fee for their visa type may be restricted from scheduling an interview.

Step 4

Pick the payment option that is most convenient for you and make your payment. When you pay the visa fee, you acknowledge that this is a non-refundable visa application processing fee required as a prerequisite to the processing of an application. It does not indicate the existence of a contract with the applicant, nor does it guarantee a successful application. There is no refund possible regardless of the outcome of this application.

Step 5

Whichever payment option you choose, you must save your CGI reference number or transaction number. You will not be able to schedule an appointment without your CGI reference or transaction number.

Step 6

Once you pay your visa fee, you can schedule your interview according to the Visa Application Fee Payment Processing Timelines below. Log-in to your profile and complete the Schedule Your Appointment steps with your CGI reference number.

Fee Payment Options

Trustly (Electronic Transfer)

You may pay your MRV Fee using your online bank account using the Trustly service (Direct Bank Transfer). This payment process can be administered online.

  1. After logging into your profile please proceed with scheduling an appointment for your visa interview. At Step 8 of the process you will be prompted to choose between several options for paying the visa application fee prior to selecting the date and time of the interview or, if eligible, receiving a drop box letter. You may select the Trustly payment option and enter your internet banking details.
  2. Before your payment is verified, you will receive a CGI Reference Number on screen. Once your payment is verified, you will be redirected to the appointment scheduling page. BE SURE TO KEEP/PRINT your CGI Reference Number. This number is proof of payment and is used to schedule your visa appointment at the Embassy. Your CGI reference number is also available on the statement of payment from your online bank account.

When making your online payment please:

DO NOT refresh the web page
DO NOT press the back button on your browser
DO NOT open a new window
DO NOT close your web browser until a payment confirmation appears.

Performing any of these actions may result in multiple payments. Be aware that there may be a delay in the payment being posted to your account. If an error occurs, check your bank account to see if the payment has been collected.

Cash at Bank

Visa Applicants can pay their application fee at any Swedbank branch in cash only. The fee is payable in Euros (EUR). Before going to a Swedbank location, you must print the applicable U.S. visa application deposit slip available below on this page. Take the printed deposit slip with you to pay your fee. You will be unable to pay your fee if you are not in possession of a valid deposit slip.
Please notice that any reliable person can make this payment for you. Bank tellers will not capture any personal information e.g. applicant name, applicant address, etc. when you pay for your visa. Your payment will be traceable by the receipt number printed on your receipt. You will need the receipt on the Interview.

If you print a deposit slip in advance of the day in which you plan to make your payment, please take note of the expiration date on the deposit slip. If the expiration date passes prior to using the slip to make your payment, simply return to this site and re-click the appropriate link below to generate a new deposit slip. Fee collection agents will NOT accept payments based on expired deposit slips. Upon receipt of your payment, Swedbank will issue you a receipt. You must save your receipt. It cannot be replaced if it is lost. Swedbank will be unable to issue a duplicate receipt. You will not be able to schedule an appointment without your receipt number.

Select the deposit slip that matches your visa application fee from the list below. Values are shown in U.S. dollars (but payment is in EUR). This page has more information about the different visa application fees.

Each applicant must pay the visa application fee using their individual application fee deposit slip generated through the visa application portal. (i.e. a family of four members must present four deposit slips).

 

 

ATTENTION: you should only pay the fee in the amount stated in the “mokėjimo suma” field of this deposit slip, and the fee should be only paid in euros.
Any fee paid in amount which doesn’t correspond to above or made in any other currency will not allow you to schedule an appointment and will not be refunded.

After you have paid the visa application fee, keep the Swedbank receipt for your records. It cannot be replaced if it is lost. You will not be able to schedule an appointment without your receipt number.

Whether you schedule your appointment online or contact our call center, you will need the receipt number printed on your receipt. If you pay in cash please use the number indicated in the “Bank’s Stamp” box of the receipt, circled in red on the receipt image below, to schedule your appointment.
