USCIS to Implement Third Phase of Premium Processing Expansion for Certain Previously Filed EB-1 and EB-2 Form I-140 Petitions

Sep 15, 2022 | Featured, I-140, Immigration

USCIS is implementing the next phase of the premium processing expansion for certain petitioners who have a pending Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers, under the EB-1 and EB-2 classifications. Similar to the first phase and second phase of the expansion, this phase 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.

Beginning September 15, 2022, USCIS will accept Form I-907 requests for:

  • E13 multinational executive and manager petitions received on or before January 1, 2022; and
  • E21 NIW petitions received on or before February 1, 2022.

USCIS will reject premium processing requests for these Form I-140 classifications if the receipt date is after these dates. USCIS has 45 days to take adjudicative action on cases that request premium processing for these newly included Form I-140 classifications. USCIS will not accept new (initial) Forms I-140 with a premium processing request at this time. On May 24, 2022, USCIS published a new version of Form I-907, dated 05/31/22. As of July 1, we no longer accept the older 09/30/20 edition of Form I-907.
