Reminder: You Can Use Credit Cards to Pay Naturalization Application Fees

As a reminder, if you are applying for U.S. citizenship, you can now use a credit card to pay the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization fee. Most applicants must pay a $680 fee, which includes the $595 naturalization application fee plus a biometrics fee of $85. 

To pay with your credit card, you must file a Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transaction. This enhancement is one of the recommendations made by the White House Task Force on New Americans (PDF).

At this time, you can use the Form G-1450 only to pay for the Form N-400 filing fee.
