Welcome to the INS
and Fingerprints information center. From here you'll be able to find most of
what you'll need to apply to INS for a service, benefit, or permit. We've provided
an Online Catalog of forms and form packages that are most commonly used to apply or petition for benefits offered by the INS.
Many of these forms (benefit applications and petitions) require the payment
of a fee in order for INS to process (adjudicate) your requests. Some also require
applicants to pay an additional and separate fee for fingerprinting. This section
will provide you with information on fees and fingerprint requirements.
On December 21, 2001, INS issued a final
rule to adjust the fees charged for
certain applications and petitions. The new fees will take effect on February
19, 2002; all forms submitted on or after that date must be accompanied by the
new fee. Read the News
Release and see the chart of new fees.
The Forms and Fees page provides information on INS forms and how to print them.
We recommend that you obtain all of your forms by downloading (printing) them
from this Website. This ensures that you are using the most up-to-date version
of the form that INS has available. However, if you do not want to download a
form, you may order INS forms by phone at 1(800) 870-3676. You may also order
forms for delivery by mail. If you wish to order forms in bulk, you may do
so through the Government
Printing Office (GPO).
