AILA Doc. No. 22052401 | Dated May 24, 2022
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is implementing premium processing for certain petitioners who have a pending Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers, under the EB-1 and EB-2 classifications. This expansion of premium processing only applies to certain previously filed Form I-140 petitions under an E13 multinational executive and manager classification or E21 classification as a member of professions with advanced degrees or exceptional ability seeking a national interest waiver (NIW). Petitioners who wish to request a premium processing upgrade must file Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service.
The expansion will occur in phases:
We will reject premium processing requests for these classifications that are filed before their start date of June 1,2022, or July 1, 2022. We will not accept new (initial) Forms I-140 with a premium processing request at this time.
On May 23, 2022, we published a new version of Form I-907, dated 05/31/22. For the month of June, we will acceptboth the 09/30/20 and the 05/31/22 editions of Form I-907. Starting July 1, we will reject the older 09/30/20 edition of Form I-907.
As previously announced, we are expanding premium processing to additional form types as part of our efforts to increase efficiency and reduce burdens to the overall legal immigration system.
