USCIS to Implement Next Phase of Premium Processing for Filed EB-1 and EB-2 Form I-140 Petitions

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 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, Request for Premium Processing Service.


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

  • E13 multinational executive and manager petitions received on or before Jan. 1, 2022; and

  • E21 NIW petitions received on or before Feb. 1, 2022.

USCIS will reject premium processing requests for these Form I-140 classifications if the receipt date is after these dates, nor process new requests at this time. USCIS will have 45 days to take an adjudicative action on cases that request premium processing for these newly included Form I-140 classifications. Please contact your GG&W attorney should you have further questions.
