09 Feb Some immigrants may be exempt from certain processing fees
USCIS recently announced fee waivers for certain procedures, particularly beneficial to immigrants.
However, these exemptions apply only to those who can prove that they lack the means to cover these expenses. In addition, it should be noted that in order to apply for this benefit, in addition to the fee waiver, the appropriate documentation must also be submitted.
How can I obtain a fee waiver from USCIS?
To receive this benefit, immigrants should be sure to complete a fee waiver form to receive this benefit. It is then accompanied by the other documents and forms required for their respective processing. Please note that there is no possibility to qualify for the waiver if the application is filed virtually. This only works for documents that are printed and sent by mail.
As with any other form, a translation of the document signed by a qualified and certified translator must be attached. However, this benefit is not available for DACA applications.
Participants in this program are only eligible for fee waivers in limited cases. Also, you do not need to submit this form for transactions that do not require a fee.
Please note that it is important to have someone available to provide this advice, as it is important to know when the fee waiver applies.
For which immigration procedures can I apply for a fee waiver?
These are some of the procedures for which it is possible to apply for the fee benefit:
- Employment authorization.
- Temporary protected status.
- Application for naturalization.
- To replace naturalization documents.
- Application for Certificate of Citizenship.
- Application to Replace Green Card.
- Nonimmigrant worker petition.
- Application for a humanitarian travel permit.
- For adjustment of status (under certain conditions).
- Petition to Cancel Conditions of Residency.
How do I know if I am eligible?
Immigrants who are exempt from paying fees must demonstrate that they are eligible for benefits through verification of income or financial status. This approval is valid for any member of the family group, as long as there is a lack of resources in the household.
If part of other benefits or social assistance, additional information may be required to justify the income level.
