Student Visa fee hikes for Myanmar Students.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

United States Embassy in Myanmar raised the price of non-immigrant visa for academic students or the F1 visa from $160 to $600. The United States Embassy’s website explains that the price hike is “to adjust fees and validity to match Myanmar’s practices.” However, it is insensible. Based on the World Bank Data, it takes an average an average person in the U.S. less than a week to earn $600 while it takes an average person in Myanmar 6.9 months to make the same amount.

Therefore, we will be requesting both governments to change this. Join us in requesting both governments set aside politics and do what’s best for the students.
