Today the Federal Register published U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Fee Schedule, a final rule adjusting the fees required for most immigration applications and petitions.
Out of the above changes, the fee increase for Form I-924 is the most significant – a 186% increase from $6,230 to $17,795. This fee increase applies to new regional center applications and to projects seeking to file I-924 project exemplar applications.
The good news is that these USCIS fee increases go into effect on December 23, 2016. Therefore, anyone thinking about filing a new regional center application or renting a regional center to file a project exemplar application should take immediate steps to insure that their application(s) can be completed and submitted to USCIS before December 23, 2016.
