Uscis will no longer accept combined filing fees for h-1b and h-1b1 petitions and related forms

Starting April 1, 2022 USCIS will not accept combined joint fees for filing Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status, Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, or Form I-824, Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition  together with an H-1B or H-1B1 Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker.

Each form must arrive with its own fee payment or USCIS will reject the application. However, the filing fee for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, can still be combined with Form I-129, if filing together.


USCIS has begun transitioning to electronic processing for requests for immigrant benefits. During this process USCIS will be using multiple systems for receipts and processing different immigration benefit requests. As of April 1, 2022, H-1B, H-1B1 petitions and related applications will be processed via different systems and will require separate payments for each.


USCIS is continuing to update, simplify, and better control their processes. The Chugh, LLP immigration team will continue to monitor the changes and provide updates as they become available. For questions regarding filing H-1B payments contract your Chugh, LLP immigration attorney.
