Effective October 2, 2020, filing fees for certain non-immigrant, immigrant, and naturalization benefit requests will be adjusted to help meet U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) operational needs. As a fee-funded agency, USCIS would be underfunded by around $1 billion per year based on current fees, and the adjustments in fees will help the agency recover its costs of services. Applications, petitions, or requests postmarked on or after October 2, 2020, must include payment of new fees as established by a final rule from the DHS, which can be read here.
Some notable fee adjustments in the final rule include the following:
There is also a $10 reduction in the filing fee for online applications, if an online option is available.
For more information on any specific filing fee adjustments, please view the table that starts on page 13 of the final rule from DHS.
