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

Client Alert!

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 EB1(3) multinational executive and manager classification or EB2(1) 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, we will accept Form I-907 requests for:

  • EB1(3) multinational executive and manager petitions received on or before Jan. 1, 2022; and
  • EB2(1) 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. USCIS has 45 days to take adjudicative action on cases that request premium processing for these newly included Form I-140 classifications. We will not accept new (initial) Forms I-140 with a premium processing request at this time.
