USCIS Fee Increase on April 1, 2024: How much will it cost to get my permanent residence in the US?

Updated: Apr 8

As of April 1, 2024, the USCIS fees to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States will be increasing significantly. It currently costs $1,760.00 to apply for a green card based on marriage to a United States citizen. This requires the filing of several forms including Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. Additionally, you are able to file for employment authorization (and receive a Social Security card) and travel authorization with no additional fee.

As of April 1, 2024, that fee will increase by a large amount. The new USCIS fee for adjustment of status will be $3,005.00 (if also applying for travel & work authorization & using the paper application, $2,955.00 for online filing). The new forms will have different prices depending on whether you file your case online or by paper. The filing fee for the Form I-485 will increase to $1440.00. The Form I-130 will increase to $675.00 for paper filing and $625.00 for online filing. Additionally, the application for work authorization will cost $260 (1/2 of the price) & travel authorization will cost $630.00.

This will be a much more expensive process in the future. These prices may lead future applicants to skip filing for certain applications, like work & travel authorization, to save money.
