On, April 1, 2024, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is changing the filing location for concurrently filed Forms I-907, Request for Premium Processing ServiceI-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker; and I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, and for related Forms I-131, Application for Travel DocumentI-765, Application for Employment Authorization; and I-824, Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition, filed with the application package, from USCIS service centers to a USCIS lockbox. 

This change is part of our larger efforts to increase efficiency and will reduce agency costs related to service center intake of these forms. This change also allows USCIS to centralize digitization of the forms for electronic adjudication, increasing our ability to redistribute and align workloads based on resources and priorities. 

Please use the following addresses when mailing concurrently filed Forms I-907, I-140, and I-485, and for any related Forms I-131, I-765, and I-824 filed with the application package.
