Payments Received in Cash Only

April 14, 2014

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince regrets to tell you that we will not/not be able to accept payment at the Embassy for any consular services by credit or debit card for the foreseeable future.  This is a worldwide problem due to a technical issue and affects all posts and their cashiers.  Until the problem is fixed, our consular cashier may not accept payment for any fees by credit or debit card.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.  Until further notice, please be advised that you may use only U.S. dollar cash or Haitian gourdes cash to pay for any services at the consular cashier window.


Before submitting your application, you must pay the non-refundable application fee of US $160 or the equivalent in local currency (Gourde) per application at a SOGEBANK branch. 

In order to verify payment of this fee, you must submit, along with your application, the original receipt for each visa applicant. (Deposit slips are valid for only one year from the date the cash deposit is made.)

SOGEBANK will ensure that the payment is made into the correct account. No account number is necessary.  If you are requested to pay at the U.S. Embassy by a consular employee, the fee can be paid in US dollars or Haitian gourdes to the Consular Section’s Cashier only.   Please note that the current exchange rate at the consular section is 46.00 Gourdes to one U.S. dollar.
