The USCIS Plans to Update its Fee Structure
The USCIS proposes fee structure modification to expedite certain immigration processes
The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is proposing a modification in its fees, which would allow fair access to immigration processes not only for “very wealthy” foreigners, according to the agency.
The USCIS is the branch of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responsible, among may other functions, for processing and responding immigration applications in the country, including adjustment of status and employment authorization documents.

Strategies to address the USCIS financial hardship
During 2020, the USCIS had to implement a number of strategies to address some financial difficulties as it came very close to laying off almost 70% of its 20,000 employees. However, USCIS Director Ur Jaddou states that through certain cost control measures, the agency has been able to recover. Among the strategies implemented are:
- Temporarily pausing hiring, keeping payroll unchanged.
- Maintaining applicant rates the same to fund other operating costs.
- Reducing the expense of biometric data collection, as no new samples are required for those applying for renewal on their already approved documents.

The USCIS financial recovery benefits immigrants
By implementing the strategies mentioned above, the USCIS has collected $5 million to maintain the operation and thus focus on creating other mechanisms to expedite the processes that have been on hold, primarily in the last two years following the arrival of the pandemic.
Other than that, the USCIS is proposing to reduce fees so that people with lower income, but who meet eligibility criteria, can apply to the process to enter the US without further difficulty.
