Before you are being interviewed, you and each applicant must pay the DV Lottery fee. For example, For DV-2016 and DV-2015 applicants the fee is $330 per person. This fee is nonrefundable, whether a visa is issued or not.
It is important to remember that fee payment procedures vary between different U.S. Embassies and Consulates. At most locations, you should make arrangements to pay your fees before your interview date and time by following the instructions of the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you will be interviewed. A few U.S. Embassies and Consulates collect fees in the consular section at the time of your interview. Therefore, you must look at the specific instructions for the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you will be interviewed so that you can follow the appropriate procedures.
Also, other fees may apply to other parts of the process, such as medical examination fees, or local government fees to obtain certified copies of records.
It is important for you to prepare for your interview thoroughly and carefully. If you do not prepare for your interview at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate thoroughly and carefully, your visa may be delayed or even denied. For that reason, it is important to have an experienced U.S. immigration attorney help you in this process. A good lawyer will help you submit the online forms, collect the required documents, and prepare you and your family for the interview.
