Premium Processing Reinstated for Permanent Residence Petitions

Effective 29 June 2009, premium processing service will once again be available for most Form I-140 immigrant worker petitions in the first, second and third employment-based preference categories, with the exception of petitions in the EB-1 subcategory for multinational managers and executives and in the EB-2 category under the national interest waiver. Therefore, all categories filed by UW-Madison can benefit from premium processing.

The beneficiary can pay the fee, unless doing so would drop the salary being offered below the prevailing wage for that occupation.

In order to file for premium processing, the department needs to complete form I-907 and submit it to IFSS along with the filing fee payable to US Department of Homeland Security. The form is located under the Permanent Residence section of the IFSS web.
