- Effective August 29, 2017, the ACS will no longer be able to accept credit card payments for non-immigrant visa application fees. All payments must be submitted in cash to any Citi Banamex or Scotiabank location across Mexico.
- To submit a cash payment please utilize the appointment website which will produce a Bank Deposit Slip based upon the type of appointment for which you have registered; the deposit slip will indicate how much you must pay and deposit slip expiration date. You must print this Bank Deposit Slip, log off the appointment site, proceed to a local Citi Banamex or Scotiabank branch, present the Bank Deposit Slip, pay the requested amount, obtain an original bank receipt for the transaction, log back into the appointment site, and enter the bank receipt confirmation number into the requested field. After you have provided the confirmation number, you may proceed to the appointment calendar. Note: You will need access to a printer to complete this procedure.
