H-1B, L-1 Additional Fees Expire

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that H-1B and L-1 petitions should no longer include the additional fee required by § 402 of Public Law 111-230, as amended, for certain H-1B and L-1 petitions. The additional fee expired on September 30, 2015. The fee was $2,000 for certain H-1B petitions and $2,250 for certain L-1A and L-1B petitions postmarked on or after August 14, 2010.

All other H-1B and L-1 fees are still required. USCIS reminded petitioners that the agency prefers separate checks for each filing fee.
