Credit Cards Accepted for N-400 Naturalization Application

Many people wonder how come they cannot pay for their immigration filing fees by means of credit cards. After all, these plastic cards are accepted by most businesses in the private sector. As of now, at least one may pay for their naturalization application fee with major credit cards - Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover. 

Applicants for American citizenship through naturalization may now pay for the government filing fees by credit card.  Currently, for most people, the basic filing fee for the N-400, Application for Naturalization, is $680, which includes the $595 naturalization application fee and a biometrics fee of $85.  Applicants  must use the new form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions, if they wish to pay by credit cards.

USCIS will reject the whole application if the credit card transaction fails.  It is therefore important to put down correct credit card information to avoid delays.
