USCIS Filing Fees to Increase by 20% on Average

Today, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that it will “adjust USCIS fees by a weighted average increase of 20 percent to help recover its operational costs.” The final rule is expected to be published in the Federal Register on August 3, 2020, and will go into effect 60 days later unless it is stopped from going into effect by court action. The DHS indicated that a $10 reduction in the fee will be provided for applicants who submit USCIS forms online where online filing is available. In addition, the final rule is expected to increase the premium processing time from 15 calendar days to 15 business days.
