USCIS will use the data collected on this form to process requests for premium processing of certain employment-based petitions or applications in accordance with 8 CFR 103.2(f) and section 286(u) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
USCIS is updating the Form I-907 instructions and respondent burden to account for the revised fees and processing time for eligible filers of Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Workers; Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status; and Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization as provided in the USCIS Stabilization Act. USCIS plans to announce implementation of these newly eligible populations via the USCIS website. This emergency action request in connection with the Implementation of the Emergency Stopgap USCIS Stabilization Act (RIN 1615-AC73) Final Rule will enable USCIS to implement additional premium processing requests for the additional categories of I-140 filers upon the effective date of the regulation change. To obtain long-term approval of the edits to the approved information collection’s instruction and burden as made in the Final Rule, USICS is requesting comment under 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1) within the rule in addition to the emergency approval being requested under 5 CFR 1320.13. Following the effective date of the Final Rule, USCIS will take the following steps: 1) review and respond to any public input received from the 60-day comment period on the Form I-907 Information Collection Request revisions; and then, 2) publish a 30-day Federal Register Notice as required by 5 CFR 1320.12(c) and submit the collection of information for Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs review. The changes to the Form I-907 are essential to the mission of USCIS to effectively support premium processing. USCIS cannot reasonably comply with the normal clearance procedures as it would delay the agency’s ability to provide immediate support to the economic recovery of the United States following the pandemic.

Through this submission made under 5 CFR 1320.13, USCIS requested changes to Form I-907 that were made in association with the final rule titled Implementation of the Emergency Stopgap USCIS Stabilization Act (RIN 1615-AC73). This rule designated Form I-539 and Form I-765 for premium processing service, which resulted in an increase in the estimated respondent population for Form I-907. When USCIS makes Form I-539 and Form I-765 available for premium processing service, those applicants will make their requests using Form I-907. USCIS made changes to the Form I-907 Instructions to reflect the designation of additional USCIS Forms as eligible for premium processing service, provide clear information about actions USCIS may take when a request is filed, and lay out the new processing times and fees. The full scope of edits is available in the Table of Changes document submitted with this information collection request.
