Reminder: Certain Updated Forms Take Effect on April 1 with No Grace Period

With the new fee rule that goes into effect April 1, 2024, you must use the new 04/01/24 editions of the following forms:

  •     Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker;
  •     Form I-129 CW, Petition for a CNMI-Only Nonimmigrant Transitional Worker;
  •     Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers;  
  •     Form I-600, Petition to Classify Orphan as an Immediate Relative; and
  •     Form I-600A, Application for Advance Processing of an Orphan Petition, and the form’s supplements.

Although we usually provide a grace period when publishing new forms, the forms listed above include changes necessary for us to administer the new fees. We have published preview versions of each of these forms on each form’s webpage linked above. Beginning April 1, 2024, applicants and petitioners must submit the 04/01/24 edition of these forms with the appropriate fee listed on the USCIS Fee Schedule G-1055. We will reject prior versions of the above forms.

We will only accept the 04/01/24 edition of these forms if they are postmarked on or after April 1, 2024.
