Beyond direct government fees and medical examination fees, there are other green card fees to keep in mind:
Vaccination costs: If your medical examination requires it, you may need to update your immunizations before you receive your completed medical examination report. Like medical examination fees, vaccination costs vary depending on the provider.
Translation service fees: If your green card application package includes documents in a language other than English, you must also include a translation of each document, certified as accurate by the translator. The cost of these services will vary – for example, a certified translation of a one-page birth certificate can range between $ 20 and $ 40. Note: Boundless does not currently provide translation services.
Application fees: As part of the green card application process, you will be required to submit digital or physical copies of supporting documents, such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate, and passport. You and your spouse will also need to bring the original copies to your last green card interview (either in the United States or at a United States embassy or consulate abroad). Government agencies usually charge a fee for issuing certain official documents.
Professional photography fees: To verify your identity and verify your background, the US government will require you to submit two recent 2-inch by 2-inch photographs, the price of which will vary depending on the service provider. While you are allowed to take your own photos, it’s usually a good idea to use a professional photography service, and many drugstores provide passport-style photos for a relatively low price.
Travel cost: When you attend your biometric appointment, green card interview, and medical exam, the US government will not reimburse you for any expenses you incur while visiting these locations. The same is true if you have to go to various government agencies to get official documents.
Delivery fees: At various stages of the green card application process, you will pay a nominal fee for the postage and mailing of your application and supporting documents.
