On September 30, 2020, the Continuing Appropriations Act of 2021, was signed into law. This law funds the federal government through December 11, 2020. The bill includes provisions to help USCIS’ budget shortfall by increasing existing premium processing fees and expanding premium processing to cover additional types of cases. Even though the bill has been passed, USCIS will need to implement the new law before any changes to premium processing go into effect. Thus, at this time, there have not yet been any changes to USCIS’ premium processing service. Stay tuned…..there will be more to come!
