Starting December 23, immigration procedures will be more expensive

Since December 23, 2016, foreigners will have to pay more for procedures before the immigration service. The increase is about 21% in migration registration services. For example, the process to register citizenship that cost 595 dollars will now be 640.

However, those living on the poverty line will pay half that rate. This is one of the most common procedures that foreigners residing in the United States must complete. Similarly, travel permits (form I-131) increase their fee from $360 to $575. Also the I-129 form, which is used for nonimmigrant worker petitions, rises from $325 to $460.

Form to apply for citizenship does not upload

Despite the changes in the fees for immigration procedures, the N-400 form, which is required for the citizenship application, the fee for this is $320, a reduced fee. This allows those with average family income, around the poverty level, to access this procedure.

The last increase in fees for immigration procedures was in 2010

The last date on which an increase in fees for immigration procedures was recorded was in 2010. In February 2013, the Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) readjusted the fee for each immigrant to 165 USD for each foreigner. who was benefited by the immigrant visa package.

If the payment is not made, the USCIS warns, the applicant will not be able to receive the Green Card. Although a large part of the financing of this office is due to visa and permit procedures, in 2010 this organization had a deficit of approximately 200 million dollars.

The government of Republican Donald Trump, with the regularization of the immigration status of thousands of immigrants in the United States, would put the house in order. We will have to wait for the real measures that the next president Donald Trump will take, in January 2017. Since 2009, when Democrat Barack Obama took the reins of power from George W. Bush, the White House had not been inhabited by a republican president.
