Today, the USCIS announced the specific fee increases that are coming in December. The last time these fees increased was in 2010, so it's been a long time coming. The new increased fees will take effect on December 23, 2016. Any forms they receive that are postmarked on or before that day will be charged the old fees.

What does this mean for RapidVisa's customers?
Unfortunately, we have no control over the government's fees and these fees are increasing for everyone, including non-RapidVisa customers. The good news is, you still have time to file under the old fees. RapidVisa will only accept old fees with petitions that are received in our office no later than November 30,2016.
Please check your signed RapidVisa agreement and note the excerpt:
I understand that the government occasionally increases its filing fees and that I am responsible to pay the increased amount if government fees increase after I have already paid RapidVisa but before my documents are filed with the government.
If you have any questions, give us a call. If you're ready to lock in your prices, go here to check out and file your petition.
