What are the details?
The fee increases project to boost revenues by over $4.5 billion, providing USCIS with the much-needed resources the agency claims are necessary to “improve service levels.” The USCIS is funded mainly by these user filing fees, as opposed to appropriations, which fund other agencies like the Department of Labor (DOL).
The 60-day comment period on the proposed rule began on January 4, 2023, and it continues through March 6, 2023. The new fee rule will not go into effect until after received comments are reviewed, and the final rule is published in the Federal Register.
