American Student Visa Fees - 2 Questions

I'm an American mailing my student visa application to study in Switzerland. Got a couple of questions about fees.

1) "An additional postage fee of USD 8.00 is required for a long stay visa application (work, student, residence), which has to be submitted to the responsible authorities in Switzerland." What does this mean?

2) Is it possible to pay this and/or the main fee of $87 by some means other than money order when mailing the application? I read the website but it wasn't 100% clear.

Thanks!

Re: American Student Visa Fees - 2 Questions

Found some information (on a facebook thread of all places) saying that I should money order the additional fee alongside the main fee, same address. Anyone know if this be a single money order or should it be two separate ones?

Re: American Student Visa Fees - 2 Questions

It may depend on the consulate that you are submitting to. My consulate (San Francisco) said that they would accept money order or cash - I didn't feel comfortable sending cash, so bought two separate money orders - one for the visa fee and one for the mail back (they charged me $20 for the mailback though!). I bet that I could have done one money order, but I didn't feel like risking anything, since we were under a time crunch. I got the money orders from the US Post Office, which charged something like $1.50 per order.
