* The proposed rule has been published in the Federal Register (81 FR 26904, 5/4/16).
The Department of Homeland Security released a proposed rule on May 4th, 2016, to adjust the fee schedule for certain forms for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The proposed rule has been published in the Federal Register (81 FR 26904, 5/4/16). Fees can average a 21% increase, up to 95% for some applications.
The proposed fees are set to take effect December 23, 2016. In order to avoid paying higher fees, many are seeking to complete their citizenship or green card applications now, to take advantage of the current fees. The biometrics fee will remain the same for applications with this requirement.
USCIS receives its funds almost entirely from applicants and petitioners for immigration benefits. The last time USCIS increased its fees was back in November of 2010. These fee increases will help recover costs associated with customer service, fraud detection and national security to name a few.
Take action now! Don’t postpone the opportunity to obtain your citizenship or green card at current fees. Filing now is your best option for avoiding the proposed fee increases.
