USCIS Immigrants Fee: Sanity check

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A family that I know has recently did their immigration interview in Bangladesh. They got the VISA to move to US. The husband, wife, and two children were applied for by the husband's brother. All together the process took about 15 years. In any case, since they got the visa, they need to pay the USCIS immigrants fee. The fee is currently $220. I told them that they have to pay for each person so a total of $880. Someone told them that they have to pay only $220. Since they have one case number.

 

They have 4 different alien number obviously but same case number. They should pay $220 x4 = $880. Can you guys confirm thats' the case. I haven't had to use the immigration process since before there was an USCIS immigrant fee. So the process is a bit murky for me. I want to give them the right information. So help me, immigration gurus. Thank you.

It's $880.  Each beneficiary must pay the fee.  It's mandatory.  No fee, then no plastic green card.

That's what I thought. Thanks for confirming.

 

I hate ####### who don't have any knowledge of said subject and still wish to spew their BS and create fake info and put people through bad situation. In this case, I'm talking about the guy who said even though they have four alien numbers, they had to only pay $220 because they had the same DOS case number. I'm going to give him a piece of my mind today or whenever I next see him.

Keep in mind that people are just trying to be helpful.  They don't get that giving bad immigration advice can be detrimental to people.  They don't get the danger they put others in.  They think they are being helpful.

Just an update guys. The dude who was giving wrong information is still arguing that since they gave him one page with one Alien +  Case number, they have to pay only 1 fee of $220. That despite there being 4 visa's with four different alien number but same case number. I politely told him to STFU and not bother me about this case anymore. I have 99 other problems and this [female dog] ain't gonna be one of them.

Some people are too stupid to understand that they are stupid.
