Premium Processing: I-140

USCIS announced on June 22, 2009 that the premium processing service will resume for I-140 (Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker) cases. This service was suspended since July 2, 2007. The USCIS announcement advises that they will accept premium processing requests for all EB1, EB2, and EB3 cases, except for EB1 Multinational Executive Transferees and EB2 National Interest Waiver cases.

USCIS will charge an additional $1000 filing fee for the premium processing service. USCIS will take one of the following action within 15 calendar days in-lieu-of this fee: approve the case, issue a notice of intent to deny (NOID), issue a request for evidence (RFE), or open an investigation for fraud / misrepresentation. They also provide a dedicated telephone number and email address to facilitate communication regarding the case.
