USCIS ALLOWS ANYONE TO PAY IMMIGRANT FEE

Rate this Entry
by Chris Musillo

In February 2013, the USCIS launched a new Immigrant visa fee of $165.00 for Consular Processed Immigrant Visa (green card) appointments. This fee does not apply to I-485, Applications for Adjustment of Status.

Applicants pay online through the USCIS website after they receive their visa package from Department of State and before they depart for the United States.

USCIS has now simplified the process for paying the USCIS Immigrant Fee online in their electronic immigration system. USCIS says that the revised payment process reduces the amount of information an immigrant must provide to USCIS.

Notably, anyone can now pay the fee, as long as they have the immigrantís Alien Registration Number (A-Number) and DOS Case ID.

The USCIS Immigrant Fee is required for individuals immigrating to the United States as lawful permanent residents. USCIS uses this fee to process, produce, and deliver Permanent Resident Cards (Green Cards).

    You have to pay the fee before you enter the US or else the green card will not be produced.
