Release Date

Important reminder: Please check our website for our current filing fees and acceptable versions of forms.

On Dec. 23, 2016, our new fees took effect and we published updated versions of our forms. We strongly encourage customers to go to to download and submit these new versions, which are updated with the new fees and have an edition date of 12/23/16.

Starting Feb. 21, 2017, we will no longer accept previous editions of these forms. See our complete list of the new fees at and make sure you are including the correct amount. You must include the new fee or USCIS will reject and return your filing.

The updated forms are currently available at, where all of our forms can be downloaded for free. Additionally, forms are available by mail, by calling the Contact Center, or by downloading or printing forms from the Forms page.

USCIS also reminds applicants and petitioners to pay the $85 biometric services fee at the time of filing for benefit requests that require biometrics, or we will reject the request.
