USCIS Eliminates Biometric Services Fee for Visa Applicants

Recently, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that effective May 17, 2021, it is eliminating the fee for Form I-131, Travel Document, and Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card. The biometric services fee was previously required for these forms, regardless of the age of the applicant.

This announcement comes as a relief for many healthcare organizations and international nurses who were facing financial burdens due to the biometric services fee. The USCIS decision to eliminate this fee is expected to save visa applicants millions of dollars in the upcoming years.
