The Government Published a Revised Version of the Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status, Form I-539/I-539A

On March 8, 2019 the Government published a revised version of the Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status, Form I-539 and Form I-539A. The old version of the form has been removed from the Government website. Starting March 22, 2019 the Government will no longer accept the old version of the form.

The revised application includes the following significant changes:

  1. Every co-applicant will now have to submit and sign a separate form I-539A.
  2. Every applicant and co-applicant must pay the $85 biometric (fingerprint) service fee with some exceptions.
  3. Every applicant and co-applicant will receive a biometric appointment notice, regardless of age. The biometric appointments will be scheduled closest to the primary applicant’s address.

To obtain more information regarding the revised application and the new requirements, please contact the experienced immigration attorneys at Monty & Ramirez LLP at 713-289-4546 or via email at
