[Q] What are filing fees for I-526 and I-829?
I-526 immigrant petition: $1,435 regardless of whether dependents are included or not.
I-829 condition removal: $2,850 plus a biometrics fee of $80. An additional biometrics fee of $80 must be paid for each conditional resident dependent, listed under Part 3 or Part 4 of Form I-829.
Why is it so expensive relative to other types of applications? Supposedly, it's more time-consuming to review and decide EB-5 applications. We believe EB-5 investors would not mind paying the relatively high filing fees if the processing times were quicker. Hopefully, the processing times will come down.
