U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has just announced its new revised fees for applications and petitions for immigration services in the United States. According to the legislation, USCIS must review the fees every two years. Starting December 23, 2016, fees will be increased by an average of 21 percent for most documents. After this date, all applications and petitions must include the new fees; otherwise, USCIS will not accept them.
For instance, the fee for the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, will be increased by 8 percent, from $595 to $640. Applicants with low incomes will benefit from a reduced filing fee of $320 by submitting the new Form I-942, Request for Reduced Fee. The fee for Form N-600 (Application for Certificate of Citizenship) and N-600K (Application for Citizenship and Issuance of Certificate under Section 322) will each increase to $1,170. Also, USCIS has introduced a new fee for the Annual Certification of Regional Center, Form I-924A, of $3,035.
According to a USCIS press release, this the first increase since November 2010.
