Why are the fees for immigrant visas decreasing?
For the first time, the cost-of-service model calculated services performed on behalf of other federal agencies, allowing the Department of State to seek reimbursement under the Economy Act. This has had a considerable impact on our costs when processing immigrant visas, because much of this work intersects with the USCIS immigration process.
Furthermore, we expect the cost of processing immigrant visas to remain stable, while the volume will increase, leading to lower costs in the short term. As a result, immigrant visa processing fees have decreased.
