The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced significant fee increases for immigration applications, effective April 1, 2024. This major fee revision, the first since 2016, aims to address the financial challenges faced by the agency. All applications submitted after this date will incur new, higher fees, impacting many, especially those filing for family-based immigration.

βœ…Form I-485 (Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status): Rises 18% to $1,440, with associated employment authorization and advance parole applications introducing new fees of $650 and $630, respectively.

Strategies to Avoid Higher FeesΒ

Why the Increase?
USCIS operates on a fee-funded basis, unique among federal agencies. The agency has been under financial strain with operational costs rising and a significant drop in application rates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This fee increase is a crucial step in maintaining its services and addressing application backlogs.
