Thread: expedited processsing

  1. #1
    i was told that if one pays an additional fee for citizenship your application goes on top the other and your application is processed much faster. is this true?

    so not true at all; there is no preferred treatment when it comes to USCIS aplications. I certainly wish there was a way. But think how everyone would try and do that and we'd be back to square one.
    if a lawyer told you that, I assume they tried to tell you that they will bring your application in themselves, which sometimes they do and sometimes it's just something they say to make you retain them... and thus it will be processed sooner...rather than have to mail it and wait until they got it..that will only win you a week or so, no more..
    don't send your application N-400 in with more than the required fee because they will return it and that will only slow you down...and don't believe anuone who tells you that there is such a way..

    Perhaps the poster is confusing this with Premium Processing?

    Premium Processing Service will provide American businesses with the opportunity to obtain faster processing of a petition to meet their needs for a foreign worker. Specifically, the USCIS will provide 15-calendar day processing to those who choose to use this service or the USCIS will refund the Premium Processing fee and the relating case will continue to receive expeditious service.

    Businesses may request Premium Processing on pending and newly filed petitions and applications by filing a completed Form I-907 (Request for Premium Processing Service) and paying the $1,000 fee. The $1,000 fee must be paid with a separate check or money order; it cannot be combined with the regular petition fee.

    Beginning on June 1, 2001, the following types of non-immigrant visas can be filed for premium processing. (Petition for Non-immigrant worker has to be filed with Form I-129)

    E-1 Treaty Trader;
    E-2 Treaty Investor;
    H-2A Agricultural Worker
    H-2B Temporary Worker
    H-3 Trainee
    L-1 Intra-company Transferees
    O-1 and O-2 Aliens of Extraordinary Ability or Achievement
    P-1, P-2 and P-3 Athletes and Entertainers; and
    Q-1 International Cultural Exchange Aliens.

    On July 30, 2001, USCIS added the following categories to the Premium Processing program:
    H-1B Temporary Workers in Specialty Occupations;
    R-1 Temporary Workers in Religious Occupations; and
    TN NAFTA Professionals.
