As part of its initiative to expand premium processing eligibility, on May 24, 2022, USCIS issued a news alert that its premium processing program will be expanded to include certain pending I-140 petitions filed under the EB-1 and EB-2 categories.
This expansion of premium processing only applies to certain previously filed Form I-140 petitions and will occur in phases:
· Beginning June 1, 2022, USCIS will accept Form I-907 premium processing upgrade requests for E13 multinational executive and manager petitions received on or before Jan. 1, 2021.
· Beginning July 1, 2022, USCIS will accept Form I-907 premium processing upgrade requests for E21 NIW petitions received on or before June 1, 2021, and E13 multinational executive and manager petitions received on or before March 1, 2021.
New (initial) I-140 filings for the categories above are not eligible for premium processing at this time.
USCIS will reject any premium processing requests for the classifications above that are filed before the appropriate start date.
