USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for Most Immigrant Visa Petitions
Time 1 Minute Read
Categories: Immigrant Visas

After nearly 2 years, the USCIS has resumed the Premium Processing program for most immigrant visa petitions.  Under this program, employers and foreign nationals eligible to self-petition may request 15-day processing of their immigrant visa petitions (Form I-140) for an additional $1,000 filing fee.  If the USCIS issues a request for evidence, the 15-day processing period begins again upon receipt of the petitioner's response.  Unfortunately, this program does not apply to those qualifying under the EB-1 multinational executive/manager or EB-2 national interest waiver categories.  Use of Premium Processing for immigrant visa petitions may also speed the processing of adjustment of status applications filed concurrently.
