Under the Border Security Act, the U.S. government collects an additional fee of $2,000 in certain H-1B cases and $2,250 in certain L-1 cases if the employer has more than 50 employees in the United States, more than 50% of whom are in H-1B or L-1 status. Typically, the fees are collected by USCIS at the time the petition is filed, with the exception of blanket L-1 fees which are collected at the time the applicant applies for the visa at the Embassy or Consulate. The fees apply to first-time blanket L-1 applicants applying for visas based on a petition adjudicated on or after November 19, 2010, and beneficiaries of blanket L petitions that were renewed on or after August 14, where a visa is being issued for the first time under that renewal. If the Border Security Act fee applies, the employer is required to annotate the blanket L petition, Form I-129S, and give it to the employee for presentation with his or her visa application. The Border Security Act fee is in addition to the Fraud Detection and Prevention fee and the machine-readable visa (MRV) fee. Petitioning companies must use the new edition of the I-129S for forms completed on or after January 7, 2011. See AILA InfoNet Doc. No. 11010668 (posted Jan. 6, 2011).
