When Should I Use Form I-907?

You should use Form I-907 to request Premium Processing Service for the petitions or applications where Premium
Processing Service is available. Visit our website at www.uscis.gov/forms/how-do-i-use-premium-processing-service
for details about which petitions or applications are available for this service.
You may file your request for Premium Processing Service with the applicable petition or application. You may also file
the request for Premium Processing Service after you file the applicable petition or application, as long as USCIS has
not made a final decision on the applicable petition or application. You cannot request Premium Processing Service for a
petition or application that is reopened after an initial decision was made on the petition or application.
You, or your attorney or accredited representative, may request Premium Processing Service only if you filed the
corresponding petition or application (for example, Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker). Any attorney
or accredited representative who makes the request must also file a properly completed Form G-28, Notice of Entry
of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative, or Form G-28I, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney
In Matters Outside the Geographical Confines of the United States, unless the attorney or accredited representative
has already filed Form G-28 or Form G-28I in the case. The Form G-28 or Form G-28I filed with Form I-907 by a
new attorney or accredited representative will replace Form G-28 or Form G-28I filed with the underlying petition or
application, and USCIS will recognize the new attorney as the attorney of record in the case.
Premium Processing Service guarantees that USCIS will take one of several possible actions (issue an approval notice, a
denial notice, a notice of intent to deny, or a request for evidence) on the petition or application within a certain processing
timeframe. The length of the processing timeframe is based on the classification or category requested. Refer to the table
in the What Is the Filing Fee and Processing Time? section of these Instructions for the relevant premium processing
timeframes. If we do not take action on the petition or application within the applicable processing timeframe, your
Premium Processing Service fee will be refunded, but we will continue to process the case. However, we may retain the
premium processing fee and not take action on the petition or application within the applicable processing timeframe if we
open an investigation for fraud or misrepresentation relating to the benefit request.
In the event USCIS issues a notice of intent to deny or a request for evidence, the premium processing timeframe will stop
and will re-commence with a new applicable timeframe on the date that we receive a response to the notice of intent to
deny or the request for evidence.

NOTE: If Form I-907 does not contain a handwritten signature, we will return the request for Premium Processing
Service (along with the Premium Processing Service fee) to the requestor.
Validity of Signatures. USCIS will consider a photocopied, faxed, or scanned copy of the original, handwritten signature
valid for filing purposes. The photocopy, fax, or scan must be of the original document containing the handwritten, ink
signature.

What Is the Filing Fee and Processing Time?
The following benefit requests are designated under the regulations for Premium Processing Service. Please be aware
that you may only request premium processing for a benefit if USCIS has announced on its website that premium
processing is available for that benefit. Your request for premium processing must also comply with any conditions that
may apply. Therefore, you may not request premium processing for a benefit that is designated for premium processing
under the regulations but not available for premium processing on the USCIS website. To determine if Premium
Processing is available for your benefit request, please visit our website at www.uscis.gov/I-907 or call the USCIS
Contact Center at 1-800-375-5283. For TTY (deaf or hard of hearing) call: 1-800-767-1833.

The Premium Processing fee is in addition to all other applicable filing fees. Form I-907 may not be filed by a beneficiary
or co-applicant of the primary form for which premium processing is being requested.
You must pay for Premium Processing Service with a separate check or money order. (For example, one check or
money order attached to the relating petition or application, and one check or money order attached to Form I-907).
NOTE: USCIS will only refund the filing fee if we do not take action on the related case within the applicable processing
timeframe. Otherwise, the filing fee is not refundable, regardless of any action USCIS takes on this request. DO NOT
MAIL CASH. You must submit all fees in the exact amounts.

Form I-907 Instructions 09/30/20

Page 4 of 7

Use the following guidelines when you prepare your check or money order for the Form I-907 filing fee:
1.	 The check or money order must be drawn on a bank or other financial institution located in the United States and must
be payable in U.S. currency; and
2.	 Make the check or money order payable to U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
NOTE: Spell out U.S. Department of Homeland Security; do not use the initials “USDHS” or “DHS.”
Notice to Those Paying by Check. If you send USCIS a check, we will convert it into an electronic funds transfer (EFT).
This means we will copy your check and use the account information on it to electronically debit your account for the
amount of the check. The debit from your account will usually take 24 hours and your bank will show it on your regular
account statement.

You will not receive your original check back. We will destroy your original check but will keep a copy of it. If USCIS
cannot process the EFT for technical reasons, you authorize us to process the copy in place of your original check. If
your check is returned as unpayable, we will re-submit the payment to the financial institution one time. If the check is
returned as unpayable a second time, we will reject your request and charge you a returned check fee.
How to Check If the Fees Are Correct

Form I-907’s filing fee is current as of the edition date in the lower left corner of this page. However, because USCIS fees
change periodically, you can verify that the fee is correct by following one of the steps below.
1.	 Visit the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov, select “FORMS,” and check the appropriate fee; or
2.	 Call the USCIS Contact Center at 1-800-375-5283 and ask for fee information. For TTY (deaf or hard of hearing)

Address Change

A requestor who is not a U.S. citizen must notify USCIS of his or her new address within 10 days of moving from his or
her previous residence. For information on filing a change of address, go to the USCIS website at
