Hello, 

 

Currently filling out G-1450 and there is no option in the address section for an overseas address.

Does USCIS accept credit card payments if you are using a Canadian credit card?

I think all fees need to be drawn from a US bank.

Hm, I have a Capital One CC which is technically a US bank.

Guess I'll have to give them a call in the morning to clarify.

The other option is a money order in USD, correct? That seems simple enough as well, but just figured I could earn some points from the big fees!

The Capital One that issues a Canadian CC is a separate entity from the US one.  I had that issue with TD when I tried to pay a USCIS fee bc I had a USD account, but they actually mean a bank that is in the US.  I rolled my eyes so hard.  Just an inconvenience when I was trying to pay my K1 fee, and had to call my Fiancé for his cc number.  

 

Money orders are pretty simple.  Usually about $5 or so.

Now that I looked into it a bit more it says the bank has to be in the US, so getting a money order from a canadian bank is USD wouldn't work either. My spouse and I live in Canada. We do have a US account and US credit card we could use, but would need family to deposit some money in the account for us first.

Just looking for an alternative way to do it if possible.

Generally speaking I haven't seen anyone have an issue with a USD money order from a Canadian bank.  However RBC, BMO and TD all have US counterparts and you can open accounts in both countries.
