New USCIS Process for Remote Payment of Application Fees

Starting February 1, 2024, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is revolutionizing its fee payment method for field office filings. Applicants, attorneys, and accredited representatives can now pay fees by mail or remotely, eliminating the need for in-person appointments at field offices. This applies to most forms, with the exception of emergency Form I-131 filings, which still require in-person payment. The new process, aimed at saving time and resources, allows for payments via mailed checks or credit/debit cards using Form G-1450, and introduces a streamlined procedure for EOIR filings by legal representatives. This update marks a significant shift towards enhancing efficiency in the USCIS application process.
