On December 27th, USCIS announced that they would be increasing the filing fee for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing, in response to market conditions and inflation. The USCIS Stabilization Act, which originally instituted the premium processing fees, grants the Department of Homeland Security the ability to biennially adjust the fees. After maintaining these fees at their current levels for the three years after the Act's enactment, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has decided to raise the premium processing fees applicable to all eligible forms and categories. This adjustment aims to align the fees with the inflationary changes observed between June 2021 and June 2023, as indicated by the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers. Consequently, specific premium processing fees will see increments: from $1,500 to $1,685, $1,750 to $1,965, and $2,500 to $2,805. What Will the Revenue from the Fee Increase Go Towards? The enhanced premium processing fees, implemented by DHS, will channel generated revenue towards various initiatives including: \tProvision of premium processing services \tEnhancements to adjudication processes \tAddressing adjudication demands (including the reduction of processing backlogs for benefit requests) \tOverall funding for USCIS adjudication and naturalization services This fee adjustment will take effect on February 26, 2024. If USCIS receives a Form I-907 postmarked on or after February 26, 2024, with an incorrect filing fee, the Form I-907 will be rejected, and the filing fee will be returned. For submissions sent through commercial couriers (such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL), the postmark date is considered as the date indicated on the courier receipt.
