F-1 Student News

Proposed USCIS Fee Increases on Hold

You may have heard that the USCIS announced updated filing fees for many applications and petitions. The new fees were supposed to go into effect on October 2nd, but the fee increases are being challenged and are currently on hold. Included in this challenge and also on hold is the need to use updated form editions. Applications for OPT and changing visa status would be affected by this policy change. We will share new information about the situation as soon as we know more.
