Public Notice – Increase in Visa Fee

The Embassy of the Republic of Sierra Leone in Washington D.C wishes to inform the Public that with effect from April13th, 2012, Visa Processing fee for United States of America (USA) ordinary passport holders will be One Hundred and Sixty United States Dollars ($160). This change was effected as a direct result of an increase in the cost of the United States of America Nonimmigrant Visa Processing Fees as follows:

Type of Visa Previous Fee New Fee
Tourist, Business, Transit, Crew Member, Student, Exchange Visitor, and Journalist visas $140 $160
Petition-Based visas (H, L, O, P, Q, and R) $150 $190
Treaty Investor and Trader visas (E) $390 $270
Fiancé(e) visas (K) $350 $240
Border Crossing Cards (age 15 and older) $140 $160
Border Crossing Cards (under age 15) $14 $15


Type of Visa Previous Fee New Fee
Immediate Relative and Family Preference Applications $330 $230
Employment-Based Applications $720 $405
Other Immigrant Visa Applications $305 $220
Diversity Visa Program Fee $440 $330
Determining Returning Resident Status $380 $275

It is important to note that the action of the Sierra Leone Embassy in Washington D.C was necessitated by the United States action to increase the cost of visa, because Embassies work on a reciprocal basis.
