Immigrant Visa Fees
The following is a list of immigrant and special visa services fees. These fees are based on a study completed by the U.S. Department of State that established the true cost of providing these immigrant services, costs which by law must be recovered through the collection of fees. The fee schedule below is current as of September 12, 2014.

All applicants, including children, are required to pay the applicable immigrant processing fees.

The Consular Section does not accept Uzbek Soum for payment.
USCIS Immigrant Fee
As a recipient of an immigrant visa from the U.S. Department of State, you are required to pay $220 to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The USCIS Immigrant Fee covers the costs USCIS incurs to process, file and maintain the immigrant visa package as well as produce and issue documents, including the Permanent Residence Card (commonly referred to as the Green Card).
You must pay the USCIS Immigrant Fee online using the USCIS Electronic Immigration System (USCIS ELIS) after you receive your immigrant visa package from the Department of State and before you depart for the United States. You will not receive your Green Card until you have paid the USCIS Immigrant Fee.
You may pay for yourself and for members of your family who will live with you in the United States. If you pay for other family members, you must have their Alien Registration Number (A-Number) and Department of State (DOS) Case ID available. The Tashkent Consular Section will provide you with your A-Number and your DOS Case ID.
