USCIS Extends Premium Processing For Certain Previously Filed I-140 Petitions
In an effort to expand premium processing to other types of petitions, USCIS now allows petitioners who have a Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker under the EB-1 and EB-2 classifications to upgrade to premium processing. If petitioners wish to utilize premium processing, they must file Form I907 Request for Premium Processing Service.
Premium processing gives a 45 deadline to USCIS to adjudicate a case. However, the I-140 must be currently pending to request premium processing. USCIS is not currently accepting new Form I-140 applications with a request for premium processing.
