USCIS Announces Future Premium Processing Eligibility for Certain I-140s, I-765s and I-539s

On May 23, 2006, USCIS announced that certain I-140, I-765 and I-539 categories will be eligible for Premium Processing Service. The effective date of premium processing service for these categories has not been announced. The following categories of petitions will be eligible for premium processing: (1) the following categories of I-140s: EB-1, EB-2 (except NIW), and EB-3; (2) the following categories of I-765s: EB-1 to EB-5 with pending I-485s; and (3) the following categories of I-539s: B-1, J-1, J-2, E-1, E-2, H-4, L-2, O-3, P-4, R-2, and TD. Under premium processing, USCIS guarantees that it will process these designated classifications within these petitions and applications within 15 calendar days in exchange for an additional processing fee of $1,000. According to the notice published in the Federal Register, the effective date for this premium processing availability will be published on the USCIS website at a future date.

We will keep a close eye to the development and inform our readers immediately after the new PPS program becomes reality.
