Use of the New Premium Processing I-140

Rate this Entry

Earlier this week the USCIS announced that it was recommencing I-140 Premium Processing, effective June 29.  Most Registered Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy cases will now be eligible for Premium Processing.  Under the Premium Processing program, the USCIS guarantees that it will evaluate the case within 15 days.

However, Premium Processing does nothing to alleviate the retrogression backlog, which can only be solved by an Act of Congress.  Premium Processing is advisable for some EB2 healthcare petitions, which are not subject to the retrogression backlog.  Unfortunately, most Registered Nursing cases do not qualify for the EB2 category.  Some Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapists' cases will qualify for EB2, if the position demands a Masters degree for entry into the job.

    Glad to see you found me here, Analytical.

    There isn't any news on any immigration legislation at this time. My sense is that efforts to pass the HR 2536 are not likely to be successful in the near term, unfortunately, since everyone is geared up for the next round of CIR in the fall. The hope is to wrap up HR 2536 within CIR.

    Premium processing is Not at all useful to Nurses and PT/OT. It is just waste of money.
