USCIS Announces Inflation Adjustment to Premium Processing Fees

Client Alert!

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a final rule that will increase the filing fee for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing, to adjust for inflation.

The USCIS Stabilization Act established the current premium processing fees and the authority for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to adjust the premium fees on a biennial basis. After leaving these fees unchanged for the three years following passage of the Act, DHS is now increasing the premium processing fees USCIS charges for all eligible forms and categories to reflect the amount of inflation from June 2021 through June 2023 according to the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers. The adjustment increases certain premium processing fees from $1,500 to $1,685, $1,750 to $1,965, and $2,500 to $2,805.

DHS will use the revenue generated by the premium processing fee increase to provide premium processing services; make improvements to adjudications processes; respond to adjudication demands, including reducing benefit request processing backlogs; and otherwise fund USCIS adjudication and naturalization services.

The fee change will go into effect on February 26, 2024. If USCIS receives a Form I-907 postmarked on or after February 26, 2024 with the incorrect filing fee, we will reject the Form I-907 and return the filing fee. For filings sent by commercial courier (such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL), the postmark date is the date reflected on the courier receipt.
