Earlier this week, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that rates for immigration benefits (visas, green cards, asylum processes, citizenship, etc.) would become more expensive in 2023. The list of new prices will enter into force only at the end of February or early March.
Although the new rates have not yet been officially disclosed, the estimate is that the adjustments vary from 10% to 30%, depending on the benefit requested.
According to the USCIS, the increase in fees will bring the U.S. agency back to its pre-pandemic financial level, which will allow, among other things, to reduce the line of pending lawsuits and institute new forms of benefits for specific categories of immigrants.
Once USCIS discloses the date of adjustments and new values, we will share it on our social networks.
