U.S. Citizen Services
Schedule of Fees

American Citizen Services fees worldwide are established in U.S. dollars.

The U.S. Embassy in Canberra determines an exchange rate for payments made in Australian dollars. Payments must be in the exact amount and you must not use any other exchange rate other than what is listed below.

Our internal exchange rate changes about 3-4 times per year, with little notice. Applicants should purchase their bank check or money order in AUD in accordance with the exchange rate published on our website after checking the information below. If a change to the exchange rate is anticipated, it will be announced on this page.

Effective January 4, 2023, the Consular exchange rate is set at USD$1.00 – AUD$1.60.
