Premium Processing for religious workers resumes

USCIS resumed Premium Processing (PP) for R-1 religious workers on July 21, 2009. Premium Processing guarantees a decision on the petition in 15 calendar days, for an extra $1000 government filing fee.

For religious workers, Premium Processing is available to petitioners who pass a site inspection at the location where the beneficiary will work. If the site inspection was at a different location, or if the petitioner failed the inspection, PP will be rejected.

Premium Processing is limited to R-1 nonimmigrant petitions; it is not available for permanent residence religious worker petitions.

For more details, see the USCIS Press Release and Q&A.
