Premium Processing Fee to Increase – Again – Dec 2nd - (10/31/19)

Following last October’s $185 increase, USCIS has announced an additional $30 increase for petitions using the premium processing service (PPS) to speed up the processing of Form I-129 petition for a nonimmigrant worker. Beginning December 2, 2019, the fee for PPS will be $1,440. PPS is an optional service that guarantees a response from USCIS within 15 calendar days. This fee does not include the base filing fee of $460 that must accompany the Form I-129, which is used to file O and P visa petitions to engage international guest artists.
