Premium Processing

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all I did some research and could not find much on what exactly "Premium Processing" is.

I received a I-797C NOA that our petition as transfered to Vermont from California.

This petition stated that the 15 day premium processing clock does not start until the correct office receives the petition.

I did find this old link from 2007 http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/53883-accelerated-processing/ .

Reading this link states that I-129f is not eligible for Premium processing.

I also read that premium processing comes at a cost, I did not pay anything or have I been told about additional fees.

Could someone please tell me if the rule has changed and what to expect?

Thank you so much

May be an error - perhaps wrong I-797 sent to you (someone else's receipt #) or the one you got was printed incorrectly (wrong text).

I'd be curious what the exact notice said - specifically the sentence "I-129f Petition for Alien Fiancé"

Here it is I wiped out personal information for obvious reasons

It appears the Original Receipt Date is May 29, 2009. It seems they think they just came across a petition that was lost or ignored for almost a year, and they want to expedite the processing.

Does the date of May 29, 2009 seem correct? Did you submit something in May 2009?

Evli,

I believe in one of your earlier postings that you stated that your petition fell under the provisions of AWA. If it wasn't you, then I apologize.

The AWA status could have something to do with the transfer of the petition from one processing center to another. I've read that AWA petitions are transferred for adjudication to Vermont then once complete are transferred back to CSC for finalized processing.

Good luck and it's nice to see some action on your petition, especially since you filed almost 1 year ago.

Alan
