In late 2004, the exchange rate between the Indian rupee and U.S. dollar changed. This new exchange rate is 64 rupees to each U.S. dollar, as opposed to the previous rate of 62 rupees to each U.S. dollar.

Immigration authorities note that anyone who submitted a visa payment prior to the changeover date (December 22, 2014) will not need to provide any additional payments to reflect the exchange rate.
