USCIS Announces Premium Processing for Certain F-1 Students

USCIS continues to implement new procedures that ensure increased efficiency. Beginning March 6th, USCIS will accept Form I-907 requests for certain F-1 students who already have a pending Form I-765 if they fall under one of the following categories: pre-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT); post-completion OPT; and 24-month extension of OPT for STEM students. Beginning April 3rd, USCIS will accept Form I-907 requests for F-1 students in the previous categories when filed along with Form I-765. Additionally, online filing of Form I-907, the Request for Premium Processing Service, will now also be made available to F-1 students in these categories. The availability of premium processing for F-1 students in these categories, as well as the convenience of online filing, will reduce backlog and streamline the process for students.
