UNITED STATES – USCIS Announces Fee Increase
Earlier this week, USCIS announced that, effective 23 December 2016, it will increase the filing fees to be paid by employers and individuals when submitting applications and petitions for adjudication.
USCIS has indicated that the fees increase (the first in six years) is necessary to reflect their increased processing costs.
The upcoming new fees for some of the most commonly submitted applications are listed here.
- Employers and individuals should plan accordingly, and, where possible, submit applications prior to the effective date of the fee increase.
