EVS collects a $100 processing fee for each initial Form DS-2019 requested. There are no processing fees for amendments.

  • This fee must be paid before the initial Form DS-2019 can be issued. It is $100 per initial DS-2019, whether for both J-1 and J-2 exchange visitors.
    • Do not pay this fee for any dependents who will not require a DS-2019.
    • Do not pay this fee “in advance” for family members who will not join you as J-2 dependents within 30 days of the start of your program.
      • If you request someone join you as a J-2 dependent in the future, you will pay the DS-2019 processing fee at that time.
  • This fee is non-refundable. Do not pay this fee unless you have received your official invitation email/letter from your UF host department. UFIC will not refund fees for overpayment or unused Form DS-2019s.
