USCIS has announced that while it has been accepting applications for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers (Form I-601A) since March 4, 2013, it has rejected many of these applications because customers did not provide proof that the required Immigrant Visa Application Fee was paid to the U.S. Department of State (DOS).

USCIS has reminded applicants that it cannot accept a Form I-601A unless it includes evidence that the applicant has paid the Immigrant Visa Application Fee to DOS. USCIS has advised applicants to make sure that:

  • they pay the Immigrant Visa Application Fee to DOS before they apply for a Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver (Form I-601A);
  • they send along with their I-601A application, the DOS Immigrant Visa Application Fee receipt that proves that they have paid the fee; and
  • the receipt they send is the official, DOS-issued receipt with the National Visa Center Case Number clearly visible. Other types of receipts, such as money order receipts, will not be accepted.

If applicants fail to submit the DOS-issued fee receipt as evidence of payment, USCIS will reject the provisional unlawful presence waiver application.
