Implementation of Immigrant Visa DHS Domestic Processing Fee
On September 24, 2010, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published the final rule titled, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Fee Schedule. 75 FR 58962. That final rule became effective on Nov. 23, 2010. The final rule, among other things, established the USCIS Immigrant Fee at $165 to recover the cost of processing that is performed in the United States after immigrant visa holders receive their immigrant visa packages from DOS at overseas consulates and are admitted to the United States.
As of February 1, 2013, USCIS will begin to collect a $165 Immigrant Visa DHS Domestic Processing Fee (USCIS Immigrant Fee) from individuals who have been issued immigrant visas by the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and are applying for admission to the United States. The USCIS Immigrant Fee covers the cost of processing that is performed in the United States after immigrant visa holders receive their visa packages from DOS and are admitted to the United States. For information on the payment and exceptions, please visit www.USCIS.gov/immigrantfee.
