USCIS Changes Filing Location for Requests for Premium Processing for Immigrant Petitions for Alien Workers.

Posted by Ann Badmus | Nov 09, 2023 | 0 Comments

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today a change in the filing location for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing, when filed with Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers, as part of efforts to increase efficiency by reducing USCIS' footprint at the service centers, digitizing the process, and reducing costs. 

Important Information 
On Nov. 13, 2023, the filing location for newly filed Forms I-140 filed at the same time with Form I-907 will change from USCIS service centers to USCIS lockboxes. 

This change in filing location does not apply if you are filing Form I-907 for a currently pending Form I-140, or if you are filing Form I-140 with an associated application (such as Form I-765, Form I-131, or Form I-485). We will soon announce filing location changes for these forms, but at this time, they should be filed with the service centers, as listed on the Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker page. 

At this time, the lockboxes will reject any Form I-907 filed with a Form I-140 that has an associated Form I-131, Form I-485, or Form I-765. These types of Form I-907 requests should continue to be filed with service centers as listed on the Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker page.  

Where to File 
Starting Nov. 13, 2023, please use the following addresses when mailing Form I-140 and Form I-907 together to USCIS. Starting Dec. 13, USCIS will reject any Form I-907 filed with Form I-140 that is received at the previous service center address.
