USCIS Updates Policy Manual to Reflect New Fee Rule

In accordance with the Fee Schedule and Changes to Certain Other Immigration Benefit Request Requirements Final Rule, published in the Federal Register on Jan. 31, 2024, and effective on April 1, 2024, we are revising our guidance (PDF, 364.37 KB) in the USCIS Policy Manual.

The revisions to the policy manual are applicable to all applications and petitions postmarked on or after April 1.

For determining the correct form version and fees, we will consider the postmark date of a filing. However, the receipt date will be used for regulatory or statutory filing deadlines.

The updated guidance includes information on new form fees, fee waivers and exemptions, limitations on the number of beneficiaries for certain employment-based forms, and the introduction of a new form supplement for orphan intercountry adoption cases.
