USCIS Expands New Fee Payment System to New York and other Field Offices

On June 7, 2019, USCIS updated the fee payment system used in New York Field Offices, including offices in New York City, Brooklyn, Long Island, and Queens, and fully replaced the older fee payment system that was previously used.  Applicants will no longer be able to pay fees by money order or cashier’s check, and the only acceptable forms of payment using the new system are:

  • Debit card;
  • Credit card;
  • Reloadable prepaid credit or debit card;
  • Personal check;
  • Business check; or
  • Attorney check.

USCIS’ fee payment expansions commenced in November 2018 in several California Field Offices, including Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, San Bernadino, Santa Ana, and San Fernando Valley.  Expansion throughout the remaining field offices is expected by the end of fiscal year 2019.

USCIS will inform those who have made appointments at these field offices that money orders and cashier’s checks for in-person fee payments are no longer accepted.  Applicants who have mailed in their fees to any of the above field offices after June 7, 2019 will receive updated rejection notices from USCIS apprising them of the new payment fee system requirements and acceptable forms of payment.  In addition, those payments will be returned to all applicants.
