G-1450 Authorization for Credit Card Transaction
Congratulations! You are almost finished with your application to become a citizen of the United States. All that is left is the citizenship application payment before you send it in to USCIS.
When you are ready to submit the Form N-400 Application Package for Naturalization, you will need to pay the $640 filing fee and $85 biometrics fee to USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services).
With the G-1450 Authorization for Credit Card Transaction Form, you can easily pay your citizenship application payment (the filing fee) with a credit card. There are no additional fees charged when paying by credit card. Follow the simple steps below to complete your G-1450 form today.
STEP 1: Complete your N-400 Application Package for Naturalization
The G-1450 is a payment authorization form for your N-400 application, so you’ll need to have a completed naturalization application first. “Naturalization” means becoming a citizen of the United States. Haven’t filled out the N-400 yet? No worries, we’re here to help – start your application package with Road to Status today.
STEP 2 Fill Out the G-1450 Form to Make Your Citizenship Application Payment
To complete the form, you will be asked to provide your:
- Personal Information
- Credit Card Billing Information
- Credit Card Number
- USCIS accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards and gift cards.
- You may only use one card to pay the total fee.
- Make sure there is enough money on the card to cover the fee or your application could be rejected due to insufficient funds.
- Authorized Payment Amount (the total amount to charge to the credit card)
STEP 3 Sign and Submit
Don’t forget to sign the G-1450 form to make your citizenship application payment final. After filling out and signing the form, you will place the G-1450 on top of your N-400 Application and mail it all to USCIS. The charge will show up on your billing statement as “USCIS N400 Payment”.
Once your application is submitted, you are about 6 months away (the average wait time) from becoming a United States citizen. When your application is approved, you will have access to all the benefits that come with citizenship – including the right to vote, automatic citizenship for your children under the age of 18, freedom from the threat of deportation, and a U.S. passport to travel freely.
