Immigration Fee Changes

On July 31, DHS announced a final rule that adjusts fees for certain immigration and
naturalization benefit requests effective October 2, 2020. The weighted average increase is 20 percent. Some of the more common forms used are listed below with their fee changes.

The rule removes certain fee exemptions, includes new nominal fees for asylum applicants, and reduces fee waivers. This final rule also encourages online filing by providing a $10 reduction in the fee for applicants who submit forms online that are electronically available from USCIS. USCIS last updated its fee structure in December 2016 by a weighted average increase of 21 percent.
