Premium Processing Services Extended to Additional I-140 Pending Cases
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it will extend premium processing services to additional pending cases. This third phase is similar to the first and second phases and will apply to certain previously filed Form I-140 petitions under the EB-1 and EB-2 classifications.
Petitioners may request premium processing upgrades by filing the new edition of Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing. Beginning September 15, 2022, the USCIS will accept Form I-907 requests for:
• Multinational executive and manager petitions that were received by the USCIS on or before January 1, 2022.
• NIW petitions that were received by the USCIS on or before February 1, 2022.
The USCIS is taking a phased approach to expanding premium processing as part of a broader effort to reduce backlogs. The USCIS will take up to 45 days to provide a decision under the premium processing request for the above Form I-140 classifications.
