USCIS Proposed Fee Increases

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to adjust certain immigration and naturalization benefit request fees charged by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

USCIS conducted a comprehensive fee review, after refining its cost accounting process, and determined that current fees do not recover the full costs of the services it provides. DHS proposes to increase USCIS fees by a weighted average of 21 percent and add one new fee.
