Key Points


USCIS announced a final rule that will increase filing fees for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing, to adjust for inflation. The increase will take effect on February 26, 2024. The adjusted rates will apply as follows:

  • Form I-129, H-2B, or R-1 non-immigrant visa: from $1,500 to $1,685
  • All other non-immigrant employment visas (e.g. H-1B, L-1, O-1, TN): from $2,500 to $2,805
  • Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker: from $2,500 to $2,805
  • Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Non-immigrant Status: from $1,750 to $1,965
  • Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization (EADs): from $1,500 to $1,685

Any Form I-907 postmarked on or after February 26, 2024, with incorrect filing fees will be rejected and returned to the sender.

Looking Ahead

According to the announcement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will use the revenue generated by increased premium processing fees to improve the premium service and adjudication process and reduce processing backlogs.
