Express News Global
Updated: February 11, 2017
Important reminder: Please check USCIS website for our current filing fees and acceptable versions of forms.
On Dec. 23, 2016, our new fees took effect and we published updated versions of our forms. We strongly encourage customers to go to uscis.gov/forms to download and submit these new versions, which are updated with the new fees and have an edition date of 12/23/16.
After Feb. 21, 2017, we will no longer accept previous editions of these forms. See our complete list of the new fees at uscis.gov/forms/our-fees and make sure you are including the correct amount. You must include the new fee or USCIS will reject and return your filing.
The updated forms are currently available at uscis.gov/forms, where all of our forms can be downloaded for free. Additionally, you can request paper copies through our forms request line (800-870-3676) and forms by mail service.
USCIS also reminds applicants and petitioners to pay the $85 biometric services fee at the time of filing for benefit requests that require biometrics, or we will reject the request.
