New fees and sending the application before the 23rd Dec 2016

Recommended Posts

So I just read that the fee goes up from 340 to 535, If my fiancé and I submit the whole package before that date, we will have to pay the 340? Or cause they take a month to run the check into their system we have to pay the new fee??

Please advice.

Thanks.

You pay the old lower fees if postmarked BEFORE 12/23/2016. It doesn't matter when your application enters the system. It's the postmark that matters.

https://www.uscis.gov/forms/our-fees

This chart lists USCIS' fees effective December 23, 2016. Applications and petitions postmarked or filed on or after December 23, 2016, must include these new fees or USCIS will reject your submission.
