USCIS Forms Eligible for E-Filing

USCIS e-filing is a service that allows you to fill out and submit applications electronically, using a computer connected to the Internet. You can also pay the filing fee online (if applicable) with a credit card, debit card or your bank account information.

You will be able to sign on your application electronically as well. At the end of the filing process, you will be provided with a receipt number and an opportunity to save the completed application into a PDF file. You may be required to submit additional documents by mail, so please read the form-specific instructions.

Which forms are available for e-filing?

As of April, 2015 the forms below are available for e-filing:

  • I-131 - Application for Travel Document
  • I-140 - Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker
  • I-526 - Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur
  • I-539 - Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status
  • I-765 - Application for Employment Authorization (Please note that the option to file Form I-765 electronically for the eligibility category (c)(3)(i) has been disabled. The option to file Form I-765 for the eligibility codes (c)(3)(ii) and (c)(3)(iii) remains in effect.)
  • I-821 - Application for Temporary Protected Status (Form I-821 will be available for e-Filing only if a TPS country is designated for re-registration purposes per the Federal Register Notice. For the latest information on TPS, please visit the Temporary Protected Status page.)
  • I-90 - Application to Replace Permanent Residence Card
  • I-907 - Request for Premium Processing Service

Note that USCIS may add or remove forms from the list - sometimes temporarily. In addition, even though most applicants are eligible to e-file, certain restrictions do apply. It is thus important that you review the instructions every time you plan to use this service.

Why E-file?

If you are eligible, you should definitely consider e-filing as it offers several advantages over traditional paper filing:

  • File your application/petition from any computer with an Internet connection;
  • Receive instant confirmation and a receipt number;
  • Submit related applications together, to one processing location;
  • Pay all applications fees electronically, in one transaction;
  • Minimize human errors.

What about supporting documents?

You will need to mail supporting documents, within 7 days after efiling, to the address on the e-Filing Confirmation Receipt.

Can I efile if I also request a fee waiver?

You cannot use efiling and must submit your paper application if you request a fee waiver.
