Important Updates from USCIS

We would like to inform you of significant changes that will impact immigration applications and petitions. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published its final rule on fee adjustments, marking the first major revision since 2016. These changes are set to address the agency's operational and financial challenges and will take effect on April 1, 2024. Applications postmarked after this date will be subject to the new, increased fees. Key Changes to Note: Unbundling of Fees: USCIS will no longer bundle fees for the I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization, or EAD) and I-131 (Application for Travel Document, or Advance Parole, AP) with the adjustment of status filing fee. The new fee schedule will require separate charges for these documents, with a reduced fee of $260 for EAD applications filed concurrently with an adjustment application and for EAD renewals. However, initial AP applications and subsequent renewals will be charged at $630, with no discounts for concurrent filings or renewals during the adjustment process.

The table below summarizes the adjustments for common employment-based and related application types effective April 1, 2024:
