USCIS Increases Premium Processing Fee
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it will increase the premium processing fee for all filings currently eligible for premium processing service effective October 19, 2020.
- The I-907, Request for Premium Processing fee for all eligible I-140 permanent resident petitions, and most covered I-129 petitions (including petitions requesting H-1B, L, O, or TN status) will increase from $1,440 to $2,500.
- The I-907 premium processing fee for I-129 petitions requesting H-2B or R-1 status will increase from $1,440 to $1,500.
All Form I-907 requests postmarked on or after Monday, October 19, 2020 must include the new fee or the request for premium processing service will be rejected.
As previously reported, the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2021 and Other Extensions Act signed into law on October 1 authorized USCIS to increase premium processing fees and also to expand premium processing service to other petitions and applications. Although USCIS has now increased the fee, it has not yet expanded the premium service option to other benefits.
