USCIS Now Accepting Payments Via Credit Card for Most Fee-Based Forms

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that, effective immediately, the agency now accepts credit card payments for 41 fee-based forms. Some of the more prominent forms include immigrant petition for alien worker (form I-140), application to register permanent residence or adjust status (form I-485), application for employment authorization (form I-765), and application to extend / change nonimmigrant status (form I-131).

Notably absent from the list is petition for a nonimmigrant worker (form I-129). Accordingly, the fees for I-129 petitions still need to be paid by check or money order.

More details on the new credit card payment option are available on the USCIS website.
