USCIS RESUMES PREMIUM PROCESSING FOR CERTAIN PETITIONS
After suspending all “premium processing” for more than two months during the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) announced, May 30, 2020, it will again accept premium fees (currently, $1,410 per form) and requests for expedited adjudication (currently, 15 calendar days) for Forms I-129 (Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker) and I-140 (Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker).
Premium service will resume in 4 phases over the next 3 weeks, with I-140 petitions first, followed by pending I-129 petitions, and then new I-129 petitions. See our quick-reference Premium Phase-In Schedule below.
USCIS warns that changes to this schedule may be announced as the month of June progresses.
