- USCIS is expanding a pilot program at the Nebraska Service Center
- USCIS is accepting credit card payments for individuals filing their existing Form I-140 with premium processing or upgrading to premium processing.
- USCIS will evaluate the results of the pilot to determine the possibility of expanding credit card payment options to other service centers
US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced plans to expand a pilot program that began on May 3, 2021, at the Nebraska Service Center (NSC) for certain applicants who are applying for premium processing. The change affects individuals who are using credit card payments for Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions.
What are the Changes?
The NSC is accepting credit card payments for individuals who are upgrading their existing Form I-140 to premium processing. The change applies to individuals using Form G-1450 to file Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers, with Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, or applicants filing Form I-907 to upgrade a pending Form I-140 to premium processing.
Currently, the USCIS pilot program remains limited to the Nebraska Service Center. USCIS will evaluate the results of the pilot program when the pilot ends to determine the possibility and likelihood of expanding the credit card payment option to other forms or service centers. Ultimately, USCIS hopes to accept digital payments with credit cards at all its service centers.
