INS Forms, Fees and Fingerprints

Welcome to the INS Forms, Fees 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).
