How to Pay Your SEVIS Fee

You are required to pay a one-time fee of $100.00 for each nonimmigrant program in which you participate.

To pay your SEVIS fee:

  • Your current Form I-20 or DS-2019 must be complete and accurate. If your information is not complete or accurate, immediately contact IPS at 209.946.2246 or fax 209.946.2094.
  • Verify that your computer has access to a working printer. Once you complete the form, you cannot restart the process or return to the form.
  • If you wish to pay using a credit card, complete Form I-901. If you want to pay using a check or money order, use (PDF) Form I-901. Save a copy of Acrobat document and complete it manually.
  • Print the payment coupon or receipt.

Make a copy of the online receipt and keep it in a safe place with your other important immigration documents.
