How to Pay the Visa Application Fee
All posts in Saudi Arabia require the online application (DS-160) for non-immigrant visas.
All persons who are applying for a business, tourism, or student visa (B1/B2, F1, F2, J1, J2, M1, B1) must pay $160 (SR 608) for the visa application fee.
You may pay the application fee at any branch of SAMBA bank in Saudi Arabia. Please use the Samba Bank Branch Locations website to find your nearest branch. Be sure to bring the yellow receipt with you when you come for your visa interview.
The only applicants exempt from this fee are those who are applying for A (diplomatic), G (international organization), C-3 (diplomatic/official transit) visas, and J-1 (exchange visitor program) applicants participating in certain programs that are funded by the U.S. Department of State or USAID.
