DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AC73 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: ●Adjustment to Premium Processing 

The Continuing Appropriations Act, 2021 and Other Extensions Act, signed into law on Oct. 1, 2020, contained the Emergency Stopgap USCIS Stabilization Act which set new fees for benefit requests currently eligible for premium processing and expanded USCIS authority to establish and collect additional premium processing fees and to use those additional funds for expanded purposes. Through this rulemaking, DHS will set those fees established by statute at 8 U.S.C. 1356(u)(3)(A) and establish new benefit requests eligible for premium processing and the associated fees made available by 8 U.S.C. 1356(u)(3)(B), but limited to those conditions and eligibility requirements set forth by Section 4102(b)(1) of the Emergency Stopgap USCIS Stabilization Act, Pub. L. No. 116-159, (2020).
