Premium Processing - Frequently Asked Questions


May the beneficiary of a visa petition seek Premium Processing?

No, only the visa petitioner, or the attorney or representative who has filed a notice of appearance, Form G-28 on behalf of the visa petitioner, may seek premium processing.


What is the Premium Processing fee?

The fee for this service is $1000. The Premium Processing Service fee may not be waived. In addition to the Premium Processing fee, all filing fees relating to the
Form I-129 must also be submitted. The Premium Processing fee must be submitted in a separate check or money order.

Are there any additional benefits to the program?

Yes, the USCIS has provided not only a unique mailing address for its Premium Processing customers, but it has also established a special phone number and e-mail address for each of the Service Centers. These special communication channels will be used solely by Premium Processing customers.

The USCIS also collects, on the Form I-907, your phone number, fax number and e-mail address so that they may correspond with you in the most appropriate manner. Premium Processing customers should be prepared to receive information on their case through any of these three types of communication.

In addition, the USCIS allows I-539 applications for dependents to receive the same expeditious processing as the principal family member’s I-129 petition, at no additional cost if they are filed at the same time.
