Immigration Forms List & Filing Costs

There is such a massive array of Immigration forms that relate to Immigration and particularly the Departments of the USCIS (United States Customs & Immigration Service), DHS (Department of Homeland Security), DOS (Department of State) and DOL (Department of Labor). Because of both the complex and costly nature of US Immigration and the large array of US visas, this becomes another part of the process.

So from the official USCIS website we are listing all the immigration forms and their filing costs as they stand now (and they do change and get replace a lot surprisingly). One form that is free to file and is noticeably absent from this list is the ETA-9035(e) which can be filed electronically to get an approved Labor Certification Application (LCA) which is needed for the H-1B visa, E-3 visa, O-1 visa, etc.
