  • News: USCIS Issues Reminder Immigrant Fee Starting February 1st

    28 January 2013

    Reminder: USCIS Immigrant Fee Takes Effect on Feb. 1

    Starting Friday, Feb. 1, those who receive an immigrant visa package from a U.S. consulate or embassy abroad will be required to pay a new $165 immigrant fee.

    We are aware of the effect that any new fee has on the communities we serve. However, the fee is necessary to cover the costs of producing and delivering permanent resident cards.

    Important Points to Remember

    • Starting on Feb. 1, 2013, applicants must pay both the Department of State (DOS) application fee and the USCIS Immigrant Fee.
    • To simplify and centralize the collection of this new fee, we will require immigrants to pay online through the USCIS website.
    • Applicants must submit their payment online after they receive their visa package from DOS and before they depart for the United States.
    Children who enter the United States under the Orphan or Hague adoption programs, Iraqi and Afghan special immigrants, returning residents (SB-1s), and those issued K visas  are the only immigrant visa cases exempt from paying the new fee.
