New USCIS Filing Fees Take Effect April 1, 2024

New USCIS Filing Fees and policies take effect April 1, 2024. Some USCIS Forms have new Form Editions taking effect April 1, 2024 with no grace period.


Updates to USCIS Filing Fees


Most forms filed online are discounted by $50 now. 

Most forms now have the $85 biometric services costs incorporated into the main benefit fee. 

(Temporary Protected Status and the filings accepted on behalf of the Executive Office for Immigration Review are exceptions). So no need to pay a separate $85 fee with the new higher filing fee. 

Form I-485, I-131, and I-765 filing fees must be paid separately even if they are filed concurrently.

Individuals seeking adjustment of status will pay $260 (half standard filing fee) for Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, if they paid the full fee for a concurrently filed or pending adjustment application;

Naturalization applicants filing Form N-400 who have incomes between 150% and 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines will pay $380

If requesting a reduced fee on Form N-400 you can check the box on the N-400 and do not need to file a separate Form I-942.

There will be no grace period for the following new forms, however, because they must be revised with a new fee calculation. Filers should click the links below to access a preview version of each new form edition prior to the April 1, 2024, effective date:


USICS says they will use the postmark date of a filing to determine which form version and fees are correct, but will use the received date for purposes of any regulatory or statutory filing deadlines.

Visit uscis.gov for latest revision of the new USCIS Form Editions. See this webpage for more information.

For each relevant form, the following table compares the previously enacted fee, the fee from the January 2023 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), and the final rule fee that goes into effect on April 1, 2024. USCIS also post an updated comprehensive fee schedule on the Fee Schedule webpage.
