The USCIS has announced that it has temporarily suspended the premium processing service for all Form I-140 and I-129 petitions. The services will remain suspended until further notice due to the COVID19 outbreak.
The USCIS has announced that starting 20th March, it will not accept any new premium processing requests. It will, however, continue processing all premium processing requests for all accepted Form I-907 (Request for Premium Processing Service).
