USCIS Reminds Public to Submit Comments on Revised Form I-912

United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) reminds stakeholders to submit their comments regarding the revised Form I-912, Request for Fee Waiver, by May 18, 2015. USCIS will continue accepting comments until May 28, giving anyone unable to comment by the initial deadline an additional 10 days to respond. After May 28, USCIS will publish a 30-day notice in Federal Register, providing stakeholders another 30-day comment period before the final form is published.

Once USCIS addresses all comments submitted during the comment periods and the Office of Management and Budget approves the proposed form, the final revised Form I-912 will be issued to the public. Until then, the current version of Form I-912 may be used.

Where to Submit Comments

Stakeholders can use any of the below methods to submit their comments.

  • Online: Comments can be submitted at Federal eRulemaking Portal website.
  • Email: Send your comments via email to [email protected].
  • Postal Mail: Comments can be submitted in writing to DHS, USCIS, Office of Policy and Strategy, Chief, Regulatory Coordination Division, 20 Massachusetts Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20529-2140.

The comments must include OMB Control Number 1615-0116 in the subject box, the agency name, and Docket ID USCIS-2010-0008.

What is Form I-912?

Customers can submit Form I-912 to obtain a fee waiver for certain immigration benefits and services based on their demonstrated inability to pay the USCIS fees.


To avoid immigration scams and unauthorized practitioners of immigration law, USCIS recommends that users:

  • Only use the USCIS website to access Form I-912.
  • Do not pay any fees for downloading the requisite forms.
  • Solicit legal services and advice from authorized personnel only.

The current version of Form I-912 with edition date 5/10/2013 may be used until USCIS issues an updated notice. The final revised Form I-912 will be issued after the completion of public comment period.
