USCIS issued a notice that certain H-1B and L-1 petitions filed on or after October 1, 2015, should not include the additional filing fees of $2,000 or $2,250, often called “border security fees,” that were previously required by Public Law 111-230. The additional fees expired on September 30, 2015. All other H-1B and L-1 fees, including the base processing fee, the Fraud Prevention and Detection Fee, and the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998 Fee (when applicable) are still required.
