Need for Correction
On September 17, 2007, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published an interim rule at 72 FR 53014 establishing the requirements and procedures for aliens seeking U nonimmigrant status. The SUMMARY and SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION sections of the interim rule made contradictory statements regarding whether there is a filing fee for Form I-918, “Petition for U Nonimmigrant Status,” and Form I-918, Supplement A. The regulation text itself contained an amendment to 8 CFR 103.7(b)(1) and language in new 8 CFR 214.14(c) reflecting that USCIS would charge a filing fee for Form I-918 and Form I-918, Supplement A. As correctly stated in the Supplementary Information (page 53031, third column, paragraph D.), USCIS will charge no fee for Forms I-918 and I-918, Supplement A, but will charge the established fee for biometric services for each person ages 14 through 79 inclusive with each U nonimmigrant status petition.
