The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on July 31 that there will be an increase in prices to request genealogy records. These new prices will become effective on Oct. 2, 2020.
The new fees will be: Genealogy Index Search Request from $65 to $160 if filed online and $170 if filed using paper form. The Genealogy Records Request fee will go from $65 to $255 if filed online and $265 if filed using paper.
The USCIS is encouraging requesters to use electronic filing because it will reduce the time it takes to process the request and to receive genealogy records.
