Alternatives to Premium Processing

Furthermore, here are some other options for premium processing:

  • Filing early: Filing the application form earlier can help reduce the processing time.
  • Submitting a compelling case: A solid case filed with all the required documents may be rapidly adjudicated.
  • Following up with USCIS: To check your case status or inquire about the delay, you can contact USCIS.
