USCIS Continues Fee Exemptions and Expedited Processing for Afghan Nationals

Today, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it is extending and expanding previously announced filing fee exemptions and expedited application processing for certain Afghan nationals. 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. We encourage you to use the webpages below to learn more about the eligibility details for each type of filing you may wish to pursue. 

Certain Afghan nationals are eligible for the following fee exemptions and expedited processing, through Sept. 30, 2024:
