USCIS Only Accepts Credit Card Payments for Forms Filed at the Lockbox

04.19.18 | Archived

On Feb. 14, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it will accept credit card payments for 41 fee-based forms processed at USCIS Lockbox facilities. In the initial announcement USCIS mistakenly include EB-5 Form I-829  Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status. However, Form I-829 was subsequently removed from the list as it is not in fact among the form processed by USCIS Lockbox.

USCIS asks that all I-829;s continued to be filed at the California Service Center. Service centers are not able to process credit card payments. See the I-829 webpage for more information.

Current versions of all USCIS forms are available free at uscis.gov/forms. Learn more about USCIS resources at uscis.gov/tools.

Applicants for naturalization and those renewing or replacing their Green Cards can already use a credit card when they file online at uscis.gov. In addition, USCIS has been accepting credit card payments for naturalization forms filed at Lockbox facilities since 2015.
