Remember just a few (four or five) years back when the filing fee for an H-1B petition was $130? Total H-1B filing, training and fraud fees are now as high as $2190, and as of July 30, 2007, they’ll be going up again.

The new USCIS Fee Schedule will raise the filing fee for an I-129 Petition from $190 to $320, an I-485 application will go up from $395 ($325 + $70 biometric fee) to a whopping $1010. If only wages would increase at these rates! Please see the link to the new USCIS Fee Schedule for more details.
