U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on September 29, 2023, that it is extending and expanding previously announced filing fee exemptions and expedited application processing for certain Afghan nationals through September 30, 2024.

USCIS said these actions “will help Afghan nationals resettle, and in many cases, reunite with family in the United States by enabling USCIS to more quickly process their requests for employment authorization and/or Employment Authorization Documents (EADs), long-term status, status for immediate relatives, and associated services.” Details are included in the USCIS alert.
