Updated Filing Process for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has introduced important changes to the filing process for Form I-907, the Request for Premium Processing Service. This form facilitates expedited processing for various immigration applications, including Form I-129 for Nonimmigrant Workers, Form I-140 for Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers, specific classifications of Form I-765 for Employment Authorization, and certain classifications of Form I-539 for Extension/Change of Nonimmigrant Status.

Key details include the effective date of the new filing fee, starting February 26, 2024, and the requirement to use the updated edition of the form (02/26/24) from April 26, 2024. The filing fees range from $1,685 to $2,805, depending on the form and requested classification. Applicants are advised to carefully follow the updated filing instructions, including filing online or mailing a paper form to the correct address based on the specific form and purpose.

Additionally, USCIS emphasizes the importance of paying the premium processing fee separately from other filing fees. Failure to do so may result in the rejection of the forms. The increased fees will contribute to enhancing premium processing services, improving adjudication processes, and addressing benefit request processing backlogs.

The USCIS Fee Calculator is available to help determine the applicable fees, and applicants are reminded to review filing tips and ensure the correct completion of the form to prevent rejections. The USCIS transition to electronic processing underscores the need to submit each filing fee separately, and applicants are encouraged to stay informed about the latest updates and requirements for a smooth filing experience.
