On October 19, 2020, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) premium processing fees will increase in accordance with the Continuing Appropriations Act signed into law on October 1, 2020. USCIS premium processing allows a petitioner to receive a decision within 15 calendar days by submitting a Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing. The fee for all premium processing requests will be increased from $1,440 to $2,500 with an exception of Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker requesting an H-2B or R-1 nonimmigrant status. For petitions for those visa categories, the fee will slightly increase from $1,440 to $1,500.
Any Form I-907 postmarked after October 19th must include the new premium processing fee. Petitions received after October 19th with the incorrect fee will be rejected.
