Genealogy Program Updates
USCIS increased most filing fees on December 23, 2016. Forms postmarked or filed on or after that due date must include the fees or we will not accept them. The new fee for Form G-1041, Genealogy Index Search Request, and Form G-1041A, Genealogy Records Request, will be $65.
Our agency is funded almost entirely by fees. By law, we conduct a fee review every 2 years to ensure that we recover the full cost of processing immigration benefits.
