Beginning on December 2, 2019, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will require an increased fee for premium processing for certain employment-based petitions.

The fee will increase from $1,410 to $1,440 for Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker and Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker. USCIS has stated that the fee increase is reflective of inflation from June 2001 to August 2019. USCIS last increased the fee in 2018.

Premium processing is an optional service for Forms I-129 and I-140 that requests a 15 calendar day adjudication from USCIS.

Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any further questions regarding this matter.
