Fee for Application for Naturalization Under Section 405
of the Immigration Act of 1990; Form N-400
Immigration and Naturalization Service, Justice.
This rule adopts without change, an interim rule published in the Federal Register on May 27, 1993, by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (the Service), which amended the existing fee schedule. The fee schedule was amended to recover the cost of providing special services under section 405 of the Immigration Act of 1990 (IMMACT), which allows for the naturalization of certain natives of the Philippines, based upon qualifying active duty military service during World War II, who would not otherwi
se be eligible for naturalization, and section 113 of the Departments of Commerce, State, Justice, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 1993, which permits the interview and naturalization of these persons in the Philippines. The fee for naturalization in those cases was raised to recover the cost of providing those special services and benefits.
