There are six main steps outlined in this process and they are as followed:

You will make your payment at the bank. Prices for specific visas will be listed, most of the fees will be around $160 U.S. dollars.

The fourth step in this process is to schedule your Interview appointment.

The three major things you will need is your passport, one 2x2 inch photo, and the application confirmation page. The last step in this process is to pick up your visa.
