SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 7, 2000, (65 FR 54148-54150) the Department published a rule adding a new item, Item 61, to the Schedule of Fees for consular services. Item 61 calls for a fee of $50.00 for review of a newly-required Affidavit of Support, Form I-864, when submitted in support of an application for immigration to the United States. The rule established October 1, 2000, as the effective date for collection of this new fee. For technical reasons, the Department was unable to begin this program on that date. This rule applies to posts designated for this purpose by the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Visa Services.
