Immigration Services Fee Adjustments

Immigration Services Fee Adjustments Take Effect April 30, 2004

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a new fee schedule for immigration related processing services.  The cost of immigration services and benefits provided by the USCIS is required to be recovered from service fees and not from general revenues.  USCIS has declared that because of new post-September 11 processes, improved security checks, and inflation, the costs of providing these services and benefits have increased.  The agency has also stated its intention to achieve the President’s goal of eliminating the application backlog by FY 2006
