NewsFlash! USCIS Agrees to Accept Previous Editions of Most Forms Until Feb 21, 2017

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued the following announcement this afternoon:

When new fees for most of our forms went into effect on December 23, 2016, we published updated versions of the forms at We strongly encourage customers to submit these new versions, which are updated with the new fees and have an edition date of 12/23/16.

We will accept prior versions of forms, with the exception of form N-400, until February 21, 2017. However, all filings postmarked 12/23/16 or later must include the new fees or we will reject them. We will accept only the 12/23/16 edition of form N-400, application for naturalization.
