Changes in Visa Issuance Fee (Reciprocity Fee) for Paraguay

Beginning January 16, 2019, Paraguayan applicants applying for F (student) and L (intercompany transfer) visas will be required to pay a fee for visa issuance, known as a reciprocity fee. This fee will make the U.S. visa cost for Paraguayans equal to the cost for the equivalent Paraguayan visa for Americans. Paraguayans applying for F visas will need to pay a reciprocity fee of US $238.  Paraguayans applying for L visas will need to pay a reciprocity fee of US $18.  This fee must be paid at the time of the consular interview if the visa application is approved. If you have additional questions regarding these fees, please visit the US Embassy website at: https://py.usembassy.gov/.
