In an effort to make applying for US Citizenship easier for eligible lawful permanent residents, the US Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) announced on Thursday, among other items, that they will begin to accept credit card payment for N-400, Applications for Naturalization. http://tinyurl.com/p532h3z. The current fee for the application is $680.00, which includes the application filing fee and biometrics (fingerprint) fee. USCIS has advised that the fee can be paid using only one method (i.e., applicants cannot pay part of the fee by check, and part by credit card). This change is certainly welcome, and should assist many lawful permanent residents who are eligible to apply for US Citizenship before the next presidential election.
