On Jan. 30, 2024, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a final rule to adjust certain immigration and naturalization benefit request fees for the first time since 2016. These new fees go into effect on April 1, 2024, and are being implemented by USCIS in order to cover operational costs required in order to timely adjudicate USCIS immigration and naturalization benefits. It is the intent of USCIS that the increase in fees will aid in avoiding future backlogs.

Please find a list below of the new fees for the filings most required by RIS clients. All filings received by USCIS and postmarked on or after April 1, 2024, must include these new filing fees or the filing will be rejected.
