USCIS Finally Starts to Implement I-140 Premium Processing Expansion

US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that as of September 15, 2022, it will begin accepting premium processing requests for certain EB-1(3) Multinational Executive or Manager cases and certain EB-2(1) National Interest Waiver cases.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that new Multinational Executive or Manager or National Interest Waiver I-140s being filed today can go in with a request for Premium Processing – only cases already filed and pending as of earlier this year (filed as of January 1, 2022 for Multinational Executive or Manager, and February 1, 2022 for National Interest Waiver) are eligible and must be “upgraded.”

USCIS is requiring that the most recent, May 31, 2022 version of the I-907 Request for Premium Processing Form be used to convert these cases.
