On May 24, 2022, USCIS issued an announcement stating that it was "implementing premium processing for certain petitions who have a pending Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien workers, under the EB-1 and EB-2 classifications."
The immigration experts at Rijal Law Firm have been monitoring these developments and are ready to help those who are potentially impacted by these changes.
"The ability to submit these advanced job classifications under premium processing can be a huge help to both immigrants and employers," explains Attorney Chandani Rijal. "In business environments, time is money, and the prospect of receiving a ruling on a petition in a number of weeks, when many cases can take more than a year historically, can really shift the cost/benefit of this option. "
Nothing comes easy, however. The attorneys at Rijal Law Firm caution that this exciting development comes with a very important asterisk.
"For the time being, this option only exists for petitioners that have an already-filed I-140. For executives and managers on the L1 track, the petition must have been filed before Jan. 1, 2021. For those with a pending National Interests Waiver, they must have filed before March 1, 2021," explains Attorney Saurab Rijal."
Clients with more recent priority dates are urged to stay tuned for further announcements, as USCIS states:
"We will continue working towards premium processing availability of additional Form I-140 petitions, Form I-539 and Form I-765 in fiscal year 2022."
Those with questions about their eligibility for this newly announced opportunity are urged to contact the immigration law experts at Rijal Law.
Rijal Law Firm is one of the premiere immigration law firms in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
