Payment of fees for EB2 (National Interest Waiver)

Published Sep 24,2019 By Dr.Christopher Gnana Seelan Selvamony

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am placed in Muscat, Oman. With the assistance from you, I self-petioned for EB2 (NIW) 5 months ago. The processing started and I also received a confirmation letter from USCIS after two months that my petition was under process. But, I received another mail saying that they couldn’t cash my bank draft, and told me to pay the fee immediately. I changed the bank and send another draft. But, again, I received the letter saying that they couldn’t cash it, and so they were rejecting my file. The USCIS also levied me 30 USD fine.

I was told that I should pay the fee through US Money Orders. As I have no friends or relatives in the US, I couldn’t purchase that.

  1. Sir/Madam, is there any other mode of payment by which I can self-petition again? Can I use my American Express credit card?
  2. Is there any age limit set for EB2 NIW filing?

Dear Christopher,

Regarding the acceptable forms of payments from abroad, please consult with the USCIS webpage by the link below

What exactly do you mean by “Is there any age limit set for EB2 NIW filing” ?
