Thread: I-751 fee

  1. #1
    Hi:

    I got I-751 form which indicates the application fee is $205 and which says the form will expire 09/30/08 on the top right corner.

    But the service center returned my application and asked me to send $275 instead. I am confused.

    Anyone knows when this new fee started.

    Thanks

    The fee is $205.00, but there is also a biometrics fee of $70.00 as well. There's some confusion as to whether it is best that an alien remit one check in total of $275.00 or two separate checks, that has caused some confusion of late. I'd remit two, and see what happens.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

    Thank you for the reply!

    I worried that USCIS will only accept one check, so I made a new check of $275 and cashed the old one of $205.

    I should just make a new one of $70 and send them two checks like you said.

    I think USCIS should make it clear (such as one check or two checks). I feel I am not doing a good job and I feel bad.

    Hi - just one question here - why this biometrics? Sorry for this question, this is ... ***
    Well, I do not know, I had my biometrics done ant US embassy already 2 years ago when I received my immigrant visa ... so now, when I filled for I-751 I have to have it done again?
    Because I sent a $205 check too ...
    I know, they have to make sure this marriage is not fake (well, mine is for sure not) but it seems like they want to make more money on us
    さん,がんばれ!

    This is weird,

    I sent my application I-751 in Sept. 2006 and sent a total of $205, and my Biometrics was included,since I had everyhting done 2 weeks after sumbiting my application.
    And only paid $205.

    PS: HONEY - you have to do your Bio-Metrics eachtime aka when you apply for your conditional GreenCard, Then again when you apply to remove the Conditional....and you will also do the Bio-Metrics again when you apply for Citizenship.

    USCIS has no digital storage facility, in place at this time, to store biometrics information. There is a validity period for biometrics of about 15 months, which means that some will have to do them over.

    Thank you all!!! - but this was something I never had to do over here in US so I am a bit confused.

    OK, so I assume I have to do my biometrics - but how? I just submitted I-751 to Nebraska (70 days before my GC expiration), their processing times are about 6 months from filling so - sorry for absolutely stupid question - how do I do my biometrics, where to go or so on? Or should I wait for their receipt and them telling me to do so?

    Thank you for your advice!!!

    Umm....u will receive a lett from USCIS,letting you know when and where to go to your biometrics appoinment,it will be set up already for you then.
    All they do is,take one "single" finter print of your index finger and one picture.Thats it...you are done within 2 minutes.

    So far, everyone I know has to do the bio metrics eachtime they change status.
    Applying for conditional, removing conditiona and appliying for citizenship..eachtime u have to do bio metrics...just for the records and to double check with the fbi,to run your records through them before processing you application and what not
