USCIS Fee Payment Changes: Transitioning to Remote Transactions

Share This Post: facebooktwitterLinkedIn

On January 26, 2024, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced significant changes to payment procedures for certain benefit requests at USCIS field offices. Under the new process, applicants, petitioners, requestors, and their legal representatives (hereinafter referred to collectively as “applicants”) may no longer make in-person payments.

To comply with the new procedure, applicants should review the filing instructions, select the appropriate field office, and mail a check or Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions, along with their benefit request. Incorrect filings will be returned.

Additionally, attorneys and accredited representatives can now process payments for EOIR-29, Notice of Appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals from a Decision of a DHS Officer, through a provided link in an email or via text from the USCIS Contact Center. Once payment is processed, they must mail their client’s EOIR-29, EOIR-27, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Representative Before the Board of Immigration Appeal, and Pay.gov receipt to the field office.

An exception to this new process is emergency advance parole requests, submitted on Form I-131, Application for Travel Document. Applicants must still schedule an appointment with the USCIS Contact Center, apply in person with their package, and pay the application fee by credit card with Form G-1450 or check at the field office.
