First Time Seeing This?

The U.S. government may require fees for nonimmigrant visa application after it has been approved. This is based on the principle of reciprocity. That is, when a foreign government levies fees on American citizens for certain visas, the U.S. government does likewise to those foreign nationals. You can find U.S. reciprocity impositions by country at the Department of State's website.
