The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) has increased its premium processing fees for Forms I-129 Petition for Nonimmigrant Workers and I-140 Petition for Immigrant Workers on December 2, 2019. The slight increase, from US$1410 to US$1440 was implemented to reflect the full amount of inflation from June 2001 through August 2019. Forms I-129 and I-140 petitions that were received by USCIS prior to December 2, 2019 remain covered under the previous premium processing fee.

Premium processing remains an optional service for certain authorized petitioners who wish to avail of a 15-day processing time which is paid in addition to the base petition filing fee and applicable fees.
