Nearly Doubles: USCIS Raises Premium Application Processing Fees
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced an increase in premium processing fees for services effective October 19, in accordance with a law signed October 1. This is stated in a press release from USCIS.
USCIS Reward Processing Service allows applicants to pay an additional application fee to expedite the processing of certain forms, typically within 15 days.
USCIS Increases Fee for Form I-907 "Request for a premium processing service " from $ 1 to $ 440 for all applications except those from applicants filing Form I-2 "Petition for a nonimmigrant worker" requesting H-2B or R-1 nonimmigrant status. The premium review fee for applicants filing Form I-129 increases from $ 1 to $ 440.
On the subject: What immigration forms can you fill out online and how to do it
Any Form I-907 sent on or after October 19 must include the new fee amount. If USCIS receives a Form I-907 postmarked on October 19 or later with incorrect payment, it will return it and refund the registration fee. For documents sent by a commercial courier (such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL), the postmarked date is the date on the courier receipt.
The new law also gives USCIS the opportunity to expand premium service processing to additional forms and requests for benefits, but USCIS has not yet done so. Any extension of premium processing to other forms will be subject to the law.
