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.

I-924, Application For Regional Center Under the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program

Investors can apply to immigrate to the US under the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program if they agree to invest in projects, known as Regional Centers. Regional Centers can submit their own applications — in the form of USCIS Form I-924 (Application For Regional Center Under the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program) — to show that they are ready for investment. Once the Regional Centers are approved, the USCIS can accept I-526 petitions from investors in the program to actually invest in the business projects. Regional Centers can submit USCIS Form I-924 if they would like to be designated as a Regional Center and considered for investment or if they would like to make an amendment or change to their current Regional Center designation.
