USCIS Premium Processing Guidelines - I-140 Employment-Based Green Card/Immigrant Visa Petions

Starting June 16, 2008, the USCIS will begin accepting Form I-140 employment-based green card petitions for premium processing in certain instances for H-1B visa holders nearing the end of their 6th year of H-1B visa eligibility. A June 11, 2008 memorandum issued by the USCIS provides guidelines for submitting applications for I-140 Premium Processing.

Such requests for expedited processing of I-140 petitions are to be filed on form I-907 along with other supporting material. Electronic submission of the I-907 is not available. [Read the entire I-140 Premium Processing Guidelines].
