DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AC18 Publication ID: Spring 2019 
Title: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Fee Schedule 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) conducted a FY 2019/2020 fee review for its Immigration Examinations Fee Account (IEFA), pursuant to the requirements of the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990 (CFO Act), 31 U.S.C. 901-03 and the Immigration and Nationality Act, section 286(m), 8 U.S.C. 1356(m). The CFO Act requires each agency’s chief financial officer to "review, on a biennial basis, the fees, royalties, rents, and other charges imposed by the agency for services and things of value it provides, and make recommendations on revising those charges to reflect costs incurred by it in providing those services and things of value." As a result of the FY 2019/2020 IEFA fee review, DHS will propose to adjust USCIS’ fee schedule via notice and comment rulemaking.
