U.S. Mission Adjusts Consular Exchange Rate
October 11, 2007
United States consular sections in India, in response to the recent rise in value of the rupee against the U.S. dollar, will adjust the consular exchange rate from Rs. 42 to Rs. 40 to the U.S. dollar effective Monday, October 15, 2007.
The rate change applies to all rupee-denominated costs for visa and passport applications, including the nonimmigrant visa application fee paid at HDFC Bank branches prior to the scheduling of visa appointments. The new application fee for nonimmigrant visas is Rs. 4,000. Please note that this does not include additional processing fees charged by HDFC Bank and our appointment service provider VFS.
