U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Fee Schedule Final Rule
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) fee schedule final rule is currently being reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to be published and implement within the upcoming months. USCIS is proposing changes to its fee schedule as the Federal law requires that the Chief Financial Officer of an agency review biennial basis the fees every two years to ensure USCIS is charging an appropriate amount. The proposed fees will be doubled and have a drastic reduction in the availability of fee waivers. Under the proposal they want to cut the fee waiver for those applying for naturalization, adjustment of status, green card replacement and renewals, and employment authorization documents. Fee waivers will remain the same under the proposal rule for VAWA self-petitioners, U visa applicants, T visa applicants and TPS applicants. If you have not filed your green card renewal, naturalization, and other process is recommended to file soon to avoid being subject to increased fees in the future.
