On December 27, 2023, USCIS announced that the filing fee for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing, will be increasing to adjust for inflation.

The fee change will go into effect on February 26, 2024. If USCIS receives a Form I-907 postmarked on or after February 26, 2024, with the incorrect fee, the Form I-907 will be rejected and returned.

The fee changes are as follow:
  • Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker will increase from $2500 to $2805, except for H-2B and R-1 petitions. For H-2B and R-1 petitions it will increase from $1500 to $1685.
  • Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker will increase from $2500 to $2805.
  • Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status will increase from $1750 to $1965.
  • Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization will increase from $1500 to $1685. Please note that premium processing for Form I-765 is only currently available for certain F-1 students.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will use the revenue generated by the premium processing fee increase to provide premium processing services, make improvements to adjudications processes, respond to adjudication demands (including reducing benefit request processing backlogs), and otherwise fund USCIS adjudication and naturalization services.
