Act Now to Beat USCIS Fee Increases!

Attention all immigration applicants! Time is of the essence to avoid higher government filing fees. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is set to implement significant fee increases on April 1, 2024, impacting various immigration applications, including green cards, fiancé visas, and more.

The impending fee hike represents the first major adjustment since 2016 and aims to address operational and financial challenges faced by the agency. To ensure you don’t fall victim to these increased costs, it’s crucial to act promptly and submit your complete application before the deadline.

Key Points to Note:

1. Application Cost Changes: Familiarize yourself with the updated fees for popular immigration forms. For example, the Form I-130 for family reunification will see a 26% increase, while the Form I-485 for adjusting status will rise by 18%.

2. Deadline: All applications postmarked after April 1, 2024, will be subject to the new, higher fees. To avoid paying more, it’s essential to submit your application before this date.

3. Strategies for Applicants: Whether you’re pursuing family-based immigration or employment-based visas, filing your application before the fee increase is vital. Completeness and accuracy are paramount to prevent delays or rejections.
