USCIS has announced adjustments to premium processing fees due to inflation, and new rates are set to become effective on February 26, 2024. Visit the USCIS announcement here.



Previous Fee

New Fee

Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker

$2,500 for H-1B, O-1, TN, and E3


Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker

$2,500 Employment-based (EB1, 2, NIW)


Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization

$1,500 (F-1 with categories C03A, C03B, C03C)



Premium Processing “I-907” forms postmarked on or after February 26, 2024, must include the new fee amount. Please consider this when requesting checks for upcoming petitions. Keep in mind that it takes ISSC at least two weeks to complete the initial steps of the petition process before we can submit a petition to USCIS.

To avoid the need for premium processing, plan ahead as much as possible. We can submit an I-129 petition to USCIS up to 6 months prior to the H-1B/TN/E3/O1 start date. Currently, most petitions are being approved within 3-4 months.

Please contact our office if you have any questions.
