U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it will now accept credit card payments for filing most of its forms.
The new payment option is available for the 41 fee-based forms processed at USCIS Lockbox facilities. To pay by Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover, applicants will need to Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transaction. USCIS will enter credit card data into the Pay.gov system, operated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and will then destroy the Form G-1450 to protect the credit card information.
Applicants for naturalization and those renewing or replacing their permanent resident cards (green cards) can already use a credit card when they file online at the USCIS website. In addition, USCIS has been accepting credit card payments for naturalization forms filed at Lockbox facilities since 2015.
