New USCIS regulations for Asylum based EAD's

For Asylum based renewals, USCIS has been rejecting I-765's where the applicant has provided a money order of $495.

USCIS no longer requires the $85 biometric payment.

See the USCIS announcement here: https://www.uscis.gov/i-765

"effective immediately, applicants for employment authorization in the (c)(08) category SHOULD NOT submit the $85 biometric services fee with their Form I-765. The biometric services fee is no longer required and submitting the $85 biometric services fee may cause your application to be rejected for overpayment."

Rev. 03.2022
