No More Combined Fee Payments for H-1B Petitions

 If you are applying for H-1B visa, you will want to know this! USCIS will stop accepting a single combined fee payment when you file some forms concurrently. Let's take a look in detail:

USCIS Will No Longer Accept Combined Fees for H-1B Petitions

USCIS Will No Longer Accept Combined Fees for H-1B Petitions

For All H-1B and H-1B1 petitions received on or after April 1, 2022, you should not combine fee payments for these forms:

  • Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status
  • Form I-765, Application for Emplooyment Authorization
  • Form I-824, Application for Action on an Aprpovied Application or Petition
When you file them together with an H-1B or H-1B1 peition (Form I-129) you need to separate the payments, aka each form comes with its own fee payment. Otherwise USCIS has the right to reject your entire package! 

Only Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service may be combined with Form I-129.

Why this change?

USCIS is transitioning to e-processing of immigration benefit requests and they will be using multiple systems to receipt and process the requests. Learn more on USCIS's page.
