How to Apply for SEVIS Online

HOW TO APPLY FOR SEVIS ONLINE

Step 1

To apply directly online, go to www.fmjfee.com or www.ice.gov/graphics/sevis/i901/index.htm

To complete the I-901 form, you will need your I-20 form and your SEVIS I.D. Number. (This can be found on your I-20 form on the top right hand corner of the first page. It will be under the words “Student’s Copy” and above the barcode). In the middle of the screen on the www. fmjfee.com website, CLICK on the middle box, “PROCEED TO I-901 FORM AND PAYMENT.”

  1. Print out a receipt before you log off the website.
  2. Allow two weeks from the time of filing and payment.

Step 2

When you go to the U.S. Consulate take four documents with you:

  1. Your Passport
  2. Your letter of acceptance from school
  3. The I-20 federal form issued by school
  4. Receipt or proof that you have filed the SEVIS I-901 fee.

Step 3

The U.S. Consulate’s office you will receive a booking appointment number with a specific date and time to interview with U.S. officials and request your Student VISA approval.

Step 4

At the appointment date and time set by the U.S. Consulate, the student should prepare themselves for the interview at least 30 minutes early.

Step 5

If the Student VISA is denied, re-apply and request another interview. Often the U.S. Government wants to know the seriousness, positive intent, and determination of the student and parents and their interest to pursue their education.
Keep the Registrar of school informed of this second interview date and time, as well as, the outcome of your interview with the U.S. Consulate.
