On September 29, 2020, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California issued a nationwide preliminary injunction and stay on implementation of the 2020 final USCIS fee rule in its entirety. New fees and form versions associated with that rule that were to be required on October 2, 2020, as well as all other aspects of the rule, are now on hold.
If you have already submitted a check to the OIS in connection with a H-1B case in the new fee amount [$555], you will need to request and submit to the OIS a check in the amount of $460. PLEASE CONTACT THE H-1B ADVISOR HANDLING THE CASE TO CONFIRM DELIVERY ADDRESS FOR THE NEW CHECK AND FOR ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STATUS OF THAT CASE.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
