On January 3, 2023, USCIS published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to adjust certain fees and procedures that would aim to decrease processing times and prevent future case backlogs. Proposed measures include:
  • Over a 30% increase for several Form I-130 Petition Classifications;
  • Over a 100% increase for Form I-751 Removal of Condition Applications;
  • Separate fees for Form I-765 Application for Work Authorization and Form I-131 Application for Travel Document when filed along with Form I-485 Adjustment of Status;
  • Incorporating biometrics costs into the main benefit fee and removing the separate biometric services fee;
  • Separate fees for each nonimmigrant classification covered by Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Workers;
  • Change the premium processing timeframe from 15 calendar days to 15 business days;
  • Institute lower fees for certain forms filed online; and
  • Decrease filing costs for low-income immigrants applying for certain benefits.
