USCIS Continues Phasing in Premium Processing for Certain I-140 Petitions28 Jul 2022
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will soon begin the second phase of its efforts to expand the availability of premium processing service for two categories of I-140 petitions that historically have not been eligible for premium processing. Specifically, the USCIS is expanding the option of premium processing to certain pending I-140 petitions filed under the EB1(c) multinational executive and manager category and EB2 national interest waiver (NIW) I-140 petitions.
Phased Expansion of Premium Processing
The first phase of this expansion of premium processing service began on June 1, 2022. As detailed in the USCIS announcement, this expansion of premium processing will be phased in as follows:
- Beginning August 1, 2022, the USCIS will accept form I-907 requests for premium processing for EB1(c) petitions filed on or before July 1, 2021.
- Beginning August 1, 2022, the USCIS will accept form I-907 requests for EB2 NIW petitions filed on or before August 1, 2021.
The USCIS is expected to continue expanding this service, and eventually all EB1(c) and EB2 NIW I-140 petitions will be eligible for premium processing. As more details are released on these expansion plans, they will be posted on MurthyDotCom.
