Immigration Alert: USCIS to Reintroduce Premium Processing for Most Employment-Based Immigrant Visa Petitions


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that beginning June 29, 2009, it will accept requests for expedited case adjudication via “Premium Processing” service for most I-140 Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker submissions. Premium Processing results in USCIS reviewing a petition within 15 calendar days, as opposed to the current processing times of 4-21 months. Premium Processing requires the payment of an additional government filing fee of $1,000 and is requested by the filing of Form I-907, which can be done concurrently with the Form I-140 or anytime thereafter.
