United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is now accepting credit card payments at all service centers through a pilot program. To pay with a credit card at a USCIS service center, applicants should file Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions. All forms are eligible to be paid by credit card during the pilot period, except Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker for H-1B and H-2A petitions.
At the end of the pilot period, USCIS will evaluate the program’s success and consider expanding credit card payments for other forms. This credit card pilot started at the Nebraska Service Center, and was expanded to Texas, Vermont, and California. USCIS hopes it will eventually lead to the agency accepting digital credit card payments at all of their service centers.
