Last week, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it is now accepting credit card payments for filling of most of its forms.
The new payment option is available for the 41 fee-based forms processed at USCIS Lockbox facilities including EB-5 Form I-526. To pay by Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover, applicants will need to use Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transaction.
Current versions of all USCIS forms are available free at uscis.gov/forms. Learn more about USCIS resources at uscis.gov/tools.
All credit card data will be stored in the Pay.gov system, operated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and will then destroy the Form G-1450 to protect the credit card information.
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.
