USCIS Will Accept Credit Card Payments for Most Common Petitions and Applications

This month, USCIS announced that it will now accept credit card payments for 41 of its fee-based forms being processed at USCIS lockbox facilities. These forms include the I-130 petition for relatives, I-140 petitions for employees, and I-485 green card applications. The Form I-129 is not included, meaning that fees for H-1B, O, P, E, and L petitions must still be paid by check.

To pay by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover, applicants will need to use Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions. Card information is entered into the pay.gov system operated by the Treasury Department, and the Form G-1450 will be destroyed to protect the cardholder’s information.
