An announcement from the US Department of State on April 13th 2012, states that the visa processing fees for immigrant and non-immigrant visas will be changed.
This reduction in the processing fees for immigrant visas will benefit the immigrants who wish to apply for permanent resident status in the United States. Moreover, this news delights the Green Card Lottery winners. It is because the Green Card Lottery winners will benefit from the new reduction in the visa processing fees. They will pay US$330 per person instead of US$440, which is the old visa processing fees for the DV lottery winners.
