USCIS Reminder: Form I-601A, Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver


Dear Stakeholder,
In recent weeks, we have seen an increase in rejections of Forms I-601A, Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver.
If you are requesting a provisional unlawful presence waiver, you must file the current version of Form I-601A with the proper fee(s) and in accordance with the form instructions.  
When submitting Form I-601A, please make sure you:
  • Submit the current version of Form I-601A (edition date 12/23/16). We cannot accept previous versions of the form.
  • Complete all required fields and sign the form.
  • Submit the proper filing fee of $630. If you are younger than 79, you must also pay $85 for biometric services.

  • Submit:
  • A printout from the Electronic Diversity Visa Entrant Status Check page confirming that you are a DV Program selectee or derivative
  • The U.S. Department of State (DOS) immigrant visa processing fee receipt showing you have paid the fee in full.

Note: Documents such as the Immigrant Visa Application Processing Fee Bill Invoice, Affidavit of Support (AOS) Fee receipt or a receipt showing the payment is in process are not accepted and could cause delays in processing your case. Find information on how to obtain your immigrant visa fee receipt on the DOS website at
