US Immigration Update (October 1, 2020): The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted the motion for preliminary injunction temporarily halting the implementation of USCIS final fee rule in its entirety and on a nationwide basis. This means that the new fee increases have been STOPPED, at least for now. We will update this webpage with information and guidance on further developments. Please check back frequently.

What happens next?
The Government (USCIS) will likely appeal to the 9th Circuit court to get the fee increases pushed through. However, no one knows when the appeal will happen or what the result of the appeal will be.

What does this mean for you?
No one knows if or when the new fees will be made effective, but as long as the injunction is in place the USCIS cannot raise fees. Taking into consideration that fees could go up for many applications at any time, it's generally a good idea to prepare & file your Green Card or Citizenship applications sooner rather than later.

See the chart below to see the differences in the current vs new fees.

Travel Document using USCIS Form I-131

The purpose of USCIS Form I-131, Application for Travel Document, is to apply to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for the following travel documents:

  • Reentry Permit A reentry permit allows a permanent resident or conditional permanent resident to enter the United States from travels abroad during the time for which the permit is valid (in other words, not expired) without the need to obtain a returning resident visa from a U.S. Embassy or consulate.
  • Refugee Travel Document A refugee travel document is issued to a person classified as a refugee or asylee, or to a permanent resident who obtained his or her legal permanent residency status as a refugee or asylee in the United States. Persons who hold asylee or refugee status and are not permanent residents must have a refugee travel document to return to the United States after temporary travel abroad.
  • Advance Parole Document An advance parole document is only issued for the purpose of authorizing the temporary parole of a person into the United States. Examples of foreign nationals that fall in this category:
    • Foreign nationals that have a pending adjustment of status application, allowing them to be able to re-enter to the U.S. after traveling abroad for business or personal reasons
    • Foreign nationals who have obtained benefits under the Family Unity Program, allowing them to be able to re-enter to the U.S. after traveling abroad
    • Foreign nationals who have applied for Asylum status, allowing them to be able to re-enter to the U.S. after traveling abroad
    • Foreign nationals with Temporary Protected Status, allowing them to be able to re-enter to the U.S. after traveling abroad

NOTE: An advance parole document is not to be used as a replacement of any required passport. And in addition, advance parole cannot be used to circumvent the normal process of obtaining a visa nor is it a way to bypass delays in a visa issuance.
