UPDATED: Limited NIW Premium Processing to Begin July 1, 2022

Shortly after posted my initial summary of the USCIS Alert discussed in my previous post below, USCIS issued an Announcement updating the information that was not initially provided with the Alert. Beginning July 1, 2022, USCIS will accept Form I-907 requests ONLY for E21 NIW petitions received on or before June 1, 2021. Basically, unless your case has been pending for more than one year already, you cannot avail yourself of premium processing.

Also, in the new Announcement was the phase in of premium processing for E13 multinational executive and manager petitions. Premium processing for E13 I-140 petitions will begin June 1, 2022 for petitions that were filed on or before January 1, 2022. Beginning July 1, 2022, USCIS will accept premium processing for E13 petitions that were filed on or before March 1, 2021. Based on what this illustrates, it appears that USCIS will issue new dates each month for filing dates that will be eligible for premium processing. If the E13 timetable is any indication we can hopefully expect that more individuals with pending NIWs will be eligible for premium processing every month.

We will have to watch for USCIS announcements each month to see which filing dates will be eligible for premium processing.
