Judge Blocks USCIS Application Fee Increase

By October 5, 2020March 31st, 2021Immigration, News

California District Court Judge White has blocked the Department of Homeland Security’s fee increase, originally slated to take effect on October 2, 2020. The October 2 fee increase would have significantly increased the costs for most employment-based applications and other nonimmigrant petition types. The new rules would have also changed the premium processing time from 15 days to 15 business days. For more information on the original fee increase, please click here.

Until further notice, application fees and the premium processing time will remain at their current costs. USCIS will issue new instructions regarding the fees and new forms.
