The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113), signed into law by President Obama on December 18, 2015, increased the fees for certain H-1B and L-l petitioners. These petitioners are required to submit an additional fee of $4,000 for certain H-l B petitions and $4,500 for certain L-1 A and L-1B petitions submitted on or after December 18, 2015. The additional fee will remain in effect until September 30, 20251. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has instructed employers to pay the additional fee using a separate check made payable to the Department of Homeland Security.
