USCIS IMMEDIATELY SUSPENDING I-907 PREMIUM PROCESSING SERVICE - (03/20/2020)
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services today announced the immediate and temporary suspension of premium processing service (PPS) for all Form I-129 and I-140 petitions until further notice due to COVID-19. USCIS will process any petition with a previously accepted I-907 request for PPS, but pre-paid envelopes will not be used. USCIS will reject the I-907 and return the $1,440 filing fee for all petitions requesting premium processing that were mailed before March 20 but not yet accepted.
Petitioners who have already filed a Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker using the premium processing service and who receive no agency action on their case within the 15-calendar-day period will receive a refund. USCIS will notify the public with a confirmed date for resuming premium processing and Artists from Abroad will update its News section accordingly.
