The US Department of Homeland Security will announce an increase in the Premium Processing fee for many immigration petitions from $1410 to $1440. Premium Processing allows certain immigration filings (such as I-129 filings for H1B or other work visas; and I-140 petitions for Immigrant Workers) to be processed in 15 days instead of many months. The proposed rule increasing the fee will be published in the federal register on October 31, and will take effect 30 days from then. The fee increase will apply to any petitions postmarked on or after November 29, 2019. Read the Final Rule.
